In New York City, a man in a suit and tie has undisclosed problems: his corporate I.D. has expired and he's denied entrance to an office building. A young woman cadges money from strangers with an emotional story of losing her ride home and needing funds. One morning at a diner, he offers her a job. She accepts with an eye to anything of value in his flat. Then, his conversation turns to raving. Take her wrap, fellas. Where can this lead? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A slice of life in New York
27 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of Julia Stiles (The Bourne trilogy, The Omen, The Business of Strangers), I was curious to see her first effort at writing and directing. I was not disappointed.

Bill Irwin (Across the Universe) and Zooey Deschanel (Bridge to Terabithia, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) were both fascinating as flawed individuals whose past is a shadow to us, and who chance encounter brings about profound changes. There is so much here that a full length feature is worth making.

Head over to iTunes and download your copy to see a great first film by a great star.
