A reluctant reunion of two estranged sisters. One is on the verge of marriage; the other is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Both struggle with truths they're hiding from each other - and from themselves. Jenny has rejected her tumultuous family and cut off communication, seeking a more ordered life far from her roots in the Bronx. And she's almost ready to commit to her longtime fiancé when her sister Lucy - the personification of all that Jenny has been trying to flee - surprises her at a critical time. Lucy and Jenny's combustible reunion brings both of them to unforeseen places, shattering and reconstructing the worlds they have both carefully constructed. Written by Anonymous

big noise, little drama !!!
3 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

i like the of " masks " we all need sometime to wear masks even with our very close circle, but i didn't get what the director feel about this idea,is it good or evil if we people sometimes obligate to hide things !!!??? ( i mean moral). we see to brothers go in opposite directions ,another time i am confused about what we are watching !!! are talking about man-woman point's of view ??? is it all about masks or pretending ??? there is a lot of surprises but a very little information about characters past - i mean in a way makes the critic feel free to analyze things in certain moments ... anyway, i feel like Nancy Savoca has to work more over details , because small details make the differences .
