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?

Excellent camera work, editing and acting with a great script
22 November 2005 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

I would say that this film falls into the genre of psychological drama. I didn't know what to expect when I saw it on LIFFE festival in Ljubljana. The story unfolds with a classical USA low class family trying to get whatever is possible to survive. The husband is a good person, the woman is working hard and looks like a good person, daughter is a teenager like every else. But something break up in the wife's had and she is going on a mission. that's where weird things happen, or so we think of them. Powerful editing and psychedelic music with a great performance by the actress and great camera work will drown you inside this movie. Please see the movie, maybe you can find yourself and your place in the world. At least it made me think afterword's.

I give it a 9/10, because of some technical flaws, otherwise is brilliant!
