Trivia

The Vanity Fair editor played by Isabella Rossellini mentions that Peter's interviewees will meet him at The Big Cup. Those interview scenes were filmed at the real Big Cup, a coffee shop in the Chelsea neighborhood (at 228 Eighth Avenue) that, before its 2005 closing, was a popular gathering for Chelsea's gay community.

Why I love independent movies.
23 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Heights is an independent film starring Glenn Close & featuring Up & coming actors from TV & film, Many of who I did not recognize.

We follow a small group of people for one full day,In one way or another they are all connected.

This is an intelligent well written script, very well acted, You (I at least) had a feeling that either I know or would like to know each member of the cast.

There are all sorts of relationships here,including very well handled gay ones.

Being an independent film with no special effects, it did not play in too many theatres. This is one of the tragedies of current film distribution. I saw it on cable TV, . It is available for rent.

I highly recommend this film. You will not be disappointed.

Rating ***1/2 out of 4, 92 points out of 10, IMDb 9 out of 10.
