A troubled young man retreats from the big city and his ex-wife for the tranquility of a small town. He is drawn into a relationship with a young woman whose boyfriend goes missing, leaving the new arrival as a suspect.
When the three are in the hotel room together, it is obviously dark outside and the time is even stated at being "midnight". However, when the television is turned on, the news channel is running live stock quotes (something that would only happen during the day) and the time on the television reads "1:30PM" See more »
I've seen a thousand girls just like you; rich families, all the opportunities and you throw it all away. You put on this act, disaffected, obnoxious, talented but undiscovered. You know what? You all end up with your sensitive husbands, pregnant, coming back pleading for a job and making my coffee.

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.
