A bored bank teller's life changes dramatically when two teams of crazy robbers hold up his branch. The main characters are held hostage and fall victim to the comedic version of The Stockholm Syndrome.
Sylvia, approaching 35, is the "sassy weather girl" at a Seattle TV station. On a live broadcast, she castigates her boyfriend Dale (who's the show's anchorman) for sleeping with his co-anchor; then she quits. She'd been living with Dale, who explains himself by saying she's cold, so she moves in temporarily with her younger brother Walt. His neighbor Byron, a computer programmer, is always in Walt's flat working. While Sylvia looks for a job, Byron offers himself as a no-strings-attached rebound-sex partner, with the condition that she not tell Walt. How will she respond, and what about finding work, living with her brother, sorting things out with Dale, and being cold? Written by
... most times unassuming and simple is much more enjoyable
It's a totally simple, little and very uncomplicated rom-com... and it works for several reasons, and the main one is Tricia O'Kelley. Had never come across any of her work before, yet she is the lead that holds this production together, and gives it true merit. There are no surprises, and the ending is telegraphed right from the beginning.. but because of her thoroughly subtle and alluring performance, you remain focused till the very end. There are lots of big names and expensive budgets that try and accomplish similar results... but this special little film is proof that it's not necessary to spend lots of money to produce an enjoyable movie experience.
