Storyline

When stage fright gets the best of her, a former actress stops leaving her apartment, crippled by fear of the outside world. Living off delivery food and residuals from her acting career, she spends her days watching bad TV and spying on the city from her window. But when her toilet overflows and a kind, compassionate plumber shows up, she reluctantly allows him into her refuge. Written by Tribeca Film

Sometimes it takes two to climb a wall
4 September 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Well, I saw this one and Oblivion the same night. I plunged into Sparrows dance at the first second and emerged at the last one and stopped looking to Oblivion after 45 minutes to continue some readings not being in the mood of spoiling the sweetness and the happiness of the first movie... And I'm a sci-fi fan...

Well written, very well played, intelligent. 150 K bucks of budget and the other 120 Millions bucks and ten times less intelligence :P

And discovery of Hanshan (googled it :p), Fats Navarro and Baby Dayliner (thanks to Shazam).

See it with your loved one, you won't be disappointed ;)
