very small film, with a very big heart.
30 October 2005 | by (Kansas, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie, while at first seems like a series of vignettes, ultimately connects to the watcher, and pulls you in, and then weaves a tale, thats heartbreaking, and heartwarming, all at the time. I was very impressed with all the performances. I will admit that I watched it solely because I am a Jill Sobule fan. Her performance was amazing in my opinion, but I was very drawn in and loved every minute of this film.

I think more people need to see it, and hopefully tell all their friends to see it. I can only hope.

Also, Elizabeth Reaser should be on everyones "to watch" list. I recently saw Stay as well, and she is amazing in that film. I cant wait to see what she does, and I hope that someday she will recognized for her talents.

At any rate, this movie is well done. Please see it, enjoy it, and be touched by it.
