I saw this film at the San Francisco Film Festival (Apr '01). It was part of Stockard Channing receiving a career award from the SF Film Society. She interviewed and the directed answered questions after the film.
The film is just about perfect in it's quest to portray a power relationship between the two women, Stockard Channing and Julia Stiles. They shot this film in only 23 days. The performances of the two actresses are outstanding and the film never hits a false note. Expected to be released in late 2001 with hopeful Oscar buzz. I hope this film is marketed well because it's a good one.
