Elizabeth's heart is broken. For solace, she drops in late at night a few times at Jeremy's diner for blueberry pie a la mode; they talk. Once, he watchers her sleep, her head on the counter. Abruptly, she leaves New York City to get away from her pain. She works a couple of jobs in Memphis. There, a heart-broken cop is drinking himself into oblivion, his ex occasionally showing up where he drinks and Lizzy works. Then, she's in Nevada, working at a casino where she uses her savings (she wants a car) to stake Leslie, a busted gambler, in a high rollers' game. After, Beth drives Leslie to Vegas where Leslie's estranged father lives. Broken relationships. What about Jeremy? Written by

Excellent actors & moody, pretty lighting can't save this pseudo-romantic claptrap from plopping fatally into a mucky bucket of bathos. This mishmashed murk of a movie misses its mark & leaves you wishing your fast forward did triple-time.
It's got tons of ambiance, and the lighting is interesting, although it looks like powdered Fruit Loops got sprinkled over every scene. None of these characters connect with each other; they say they want to, but it's only the lighting that makes us foolishly expect that one of these dolts is a half-baked person.
Smart, solid & creative actors did their best with an aimless story, especially Rachel & David, but the film is devoid of originality, wit & real emotion.
