Storyline

'Heights' follows five characters over 24 hours on a fall day in New York City. Isabel, a photographer, is having second thoughts about her upcoming marriage to Jonathan, a lawyer. On the same day, Isabel's mother Diana learns that her husband has a new lover and begins to re-think her life choices and her open marriage. Diana and Isabel's paths cross with Alec, a young actor, and with Peter, a journalist. As the interrelated stories proceed, the connections between the lives of the five characters begin to reveal themselves and their stories unravel. Isabel, Jonathan, Diana, Alec, and Peter must choose what kind of lives they will lead before the sun comes up on the next day. Written by Sujit R. Varma

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.

Goofs

At the audition of Alec with Liz, it is established that Alec lives on the fifth floor while Isabel lives on the third floor. But at the beginning of the movie, Isabel comes downstairs from her apartment and passes another apartment door near the stairs. Approximately five seconds after she passes, Alec comes out of THAT apartment with his dog. Since when is the fifth floor at a lower level than the third floor? See more »

A thoughtful story about desperation
13 February 2006 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

I truly enjoyed this film. I had heard so much about it online and from friends, so I finally watched it the other night. I was very impressed. It's so nice to see Glenn Close back in the limelight this past year. She is one of the best. Ms. Close was also the perfect actor to play the role of Diana Lee. She brought veracity, desperation, and charm to a character that may have otherwise been easily disliked. Desperation can be a truly likable quality in a film's character. Each one of the characters in this story had a quiet desperation about them. Desperation and denial. Key aspects of all human lives. I challenge anyone to tell me these were not realistic characters. The story itself or the situations they were put into, maybe not. You have a famed actress who has everything except a stable relationship with her husband, a struggling photo journalist slowly realizing her life isn't a perfect as it seems, a youthful lawyer seeking the perfect way to forget himself, and a young actor needing more than just a steady gig onstage. I highly recommend this film. You'll come away feeling something, and that is the most important thing.
