Good character study with a bit of a Rounders feel to it
Nice character study of a female pool player whose life is going in smaller and smaller circles and simply wants out, but knows no way to get out.
Excellent performances from Famke Janssen who brings a real underplayed performance, and particularly Rip Torn, who I normally tolerate - as it always seems to be a variation of the MIB character - here he plays the pool hall owner and gives a very good performance indeed - nicely underplayed.
The plot of pool player trying to find meaning in her life with her estranged son is good - but the film is at its best when it's playing pool - just wish there had been more and more of that - very nice. The hustling is never glamorized and feels authentic and kind of grubby.
All in all a nice small indie movie that delivers a satisfying character study of the type normally given to guys - and for that alone it is notable.
For first time director Chris Eigeman whose previous acting credits are more in the romantic comedy line or TV shows - this ain't bad at all...
