Based on a true story. Liz Murray is a young girl who is taken care of by her loving, but drug-addicted parents. Liz becomes homeless at 15 and after a tragedy comes upon her, she begins her work to finish high school.
With only the plan of moving in together after high school, two unusually devious friends seek direction in life. As a mere gag, they respond to a man's newspaper ad for a date, only to find it will greatly complicate their lives.
Anthology film created from two unaired episodes of Night Visions. A mental patient must not stop behaving in patterns. A maze on collage campus is actually a portal. A town fears music. A court employee can hear thoughts of one defendant.
When she wakes up after the dream with sewn up dead guy she turns on the TV and there is the audio of a news broadcast, except the screen is blank - just a blue screen with corner cross marks where the effects editor was supposed to add the video on post edit. See more »
I too saw this film at the recent AFI festival in L.A. and thought it was absolutely amazing - an extremely original and enigmatic mind bender, it reminded me of a cross between Rosenary's Baby and Lost Highway. Having said that, I can see that this film is definitely a love it or hate it kind of deal. I actually went back for the second screening and felt that both audiences were generally extremely receptive (the people sitting either side of me gave it top marks) and were particular enthusiastic on the second day during the Q&A with director and Thora Birch. Personally, I would consider this an absolute must see.
