Did You Know?


Gloria's trailer is visible next to the barber shop the first day she arrives to work on the books; it shouldn't be there yet. The storyline calls for the trailer to be parked next to the shop the following day. When sitting behind the shop and she informs him of the business's financial woes that afternoon, Art's Mustang is parked beside the building, as it should be. See more »

a fine little vehicle for Cliff
8 January 2010 | by (Spring Valley, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Just watched the this little movie from netflix. I'm not sure what I rated on their system that had them recommend this one to me but they did, I checked it and am glad to have done so. It is nice to see a well acted, be it slow, character driven movie were nothing blows up, there are no fights and no green screen used. John Ratwhatever is outstanding as the older man who has lost what matters most to him, his wife and still has to muddle through his day to day life. One reviewer referred to him as unlikeable which I do not see, he is just left walking through life. The young lady who comes to work for him in his barbershop and shows him that he still has something to give is more then adequate. There is no heavy handed message here, just a little indi movie about people and their lives.
