Somewhere Tonight is an urban fable that tells the story of two lonely New Yorkers trying to find companionship over an adult chat phone line. John Turturro plays Wooly, a simple, curiously odd bike messenger hoping to hear a bit of 'spicy' talk from Patti (Katherine Borowitz), an agoraphobic shut-in. Although each is not what the other hopes they will be, together they prove that wisps of enchantment can be found in even the most overlooked of hearts. And that hope takes on many unexpected shades. Inspired by slain Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh's 06. Written by

Excellent Film. Definitely an Independent Film feel. Moody, Quirky, Sour, Sweet, Sentimental, Real, Uplifting and Surprising. If you are looking for action, this isn't the movie for you, but if you like character development, depth and good writing with offbeat, sincere characters this is a thoughtful, sensitive and gently moving film. It shows much of what we often hide and brings our frailties, flaws and idiosyncrasies into the company of another. Personal growth can be baby steps, but still significant. Filled with Creative and Intimate scenes. Delicately sensual versus sexual, though sexuality is an aspect of this film, but not an overriding one. The film speaks to the senses. I love the visual of the parting shot and the music during that scene. The score is wonderful as well. If you like Woody Allen films, then you will probably enjoy this.
