Storyline

In contemporary Houston, Julia Barker and her husband live paycheck to paycheck; she delivers meals on wheels and works Bingo nights. She's stressed. She's gotten over-weight and doesn't recognize the puffy and tired face she sees in the mirror. She's having migraines and blackouts, and she's seeing visions - of a desolate room. Suddenly she leaves for New York City, checks into a cheap hotel, and goes in search of the room. She follows any sign she can find: a sudden encounter with an old friend, a meditation group, a Tarot reading, and an invitation to a party. Is she getting closer? But to what?

This film is awful
2 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ouch. Wow. Terrible. Simple film that is so dull and boring with no rhyme or reason. The first half is almost interesting as she "loses it"... but the second half she wanders around NY in a dazed fog, leaving the viewers in a dark cloud of disappointment. The ending was nothing at all... leaving us so empty. The rental box sounded very compelling, but the film is a waste of time. Hey, the lead actress did a really good job of playing the part of the overburdened, confused and dazed housewife, but the role was not enough to carry this film.

Sorry, don't rent this one. All they had to do was give us a solid second half and a firm conclusion and I would have given it a 5.
