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?

What could I spoil?
12 February 2006 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Well, at least this movie was short - only about an hour and ten minutes. Yet I still want to kick myself for wasting that much of my life on this movie. I'm not one to bash filmmakers - I can appreciate the effort in almost anything. But when you make me sit and wait and wait and wait for some kind of reason for the existence of the film, let alone any kind of resolution of the story, and you leave me with nothing, then I'm just plain annoyed. I don't think I'm spoiling anything when I tell you there's almost no story at all here. If you read the synopsis provided by the filmmakers, you already know the whole story, what little there is. Films like this are what give indie film a bad name. Though Cindi Williams gives a credible performance as the lost-soul heroine of the movie, there is no other redeeming quality I can find here. I felt this movie was a complete waste of time.
