great character driven dramedy
17 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

A story of life, happiness, sadness, and love, featuring wonderful performances by all of the lead woman: Sally Kirkland, Sheri Hellard, and Heidi Marnhout. Hellard plays Pricilla who just might be having the worst day of her life. She is amazing in this role. Her performance so touched me that I thought about it for days after seeing the film. Sally Kirkland plays her wacky mom who never gave Pricilla the love she needed. I also loved Kirkland in this role. It's the best thing I've seen her do since Anna. She really runs the gamut of emotions and has one speech in particular that is heartbreaking and she plays it perfectly. Heidi Marnhout is adorable as Pricilla's daughter Wendy who is fighting between being a little girl and a grown woman. Marnhout is a true talent.

I got involved with each character and loved these quirky woman. This was an intelligent gutsy movie that blended humor with the harsh realities of life.
