Storyline

Andrew Gillis' debut feature, simulating a documentary film with its use of handheld cameras, was awarded an official certificate for following Dogme 95's rules for "cinematic chastity." Following college, Karen relocates to Security, Colorado, to be close to boyfriend Paul. With an apartment and a job in a record store, her life is in order, so she then embarks on her dream of becoming a writer. However, her job is unfulfilling, and when she spots a theft in the store, she doesn't report the shoplifter but instead attempts to befriend her. Unable to relate to life around her, Karen has a growing dissatisfaction with her existence, and an unusual psychological portrait emerges as she attempts to deal with everyday realities and find security in Security.

What is emotional starvation?
8 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Andrew Gillis' film is great for its intimate documentation of one person's struggle to understand, find, and discover the love- energy, the river that makes his protagonist feel the "rock'n'roll" of her life.

Everyone's in love with the brilliant and genuine Karen, played by Karen Felber, but who has what she needs? The means for a life of emotional energy, la vida. In time Karen finds that her own emotional depth, vitality and wealth are not balanced by her beau, Paul, played by Paul Schneider.

Karen's painful walk through frustration and split, search and development are transcendent in the casting of Karen Felber in the leading role. One can have little doubt that the life of this film is made possible by Felber's comprehension and delivery.

The things we say, struggling to grasp ourselves and our spiritual lives can be live or morbid, laughing or tearful, or just sobbing.

The emotional life that Karen needs may be perceived but not met by Paul. Does he not have the capacity or the understanding? spirit or words? gravity? or the will to accept and give freely and openly? Karen and Paul break-up and then come together in the emotional energy she needs. until she wakes to wonder if, to know that it's not the thing she needs to live.

She searches her world, looking for something, perhaps she's not sure what. She knows what she feels, and is certain in it.
