Storyline

Sara is a "straight arrow", no nonsense school teacher who has earned the respect of her family, friends, colleagues and community. She frowns on anything that is deviant, until she meets Virgil, a tatoo artist who prefers watching romantic movies to sleeping around. As their friendship turns to romance, Sara finds herself questioning her life's decisions, including her future with her fiance, Brett, and whether she should continue her current life or break free from her bonds to find her true self.

Quotes

Virgil: [explaining why he gets tattoos] It's for different reasons. Sometimes it's a person I've met, or a place I've been. Sometimes it's just some cool thing I saw on the wall.
Sara: So... nouns, basically.

Indie sensibility with commercial appeal
19 July 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This film was funny, touching and romantic in every sense. I was completely enthralled. It was extremely well done...well-written, lovingingly directed, beautifully acted...just a joy to watch. Megan Edwards was amazing as the lead, Sara - comepletely believable throughout her character's journey, which could've been tricky in the hands of a less talented actress. I was captivated by this film from start to finish. I'm glad I was lucky enough to stumble upon a screening. As of this writing I don't think it has a distributor...it would be a shame if this film didn't get seen by a wider audience. See it if you can.
