just as offbeat as one expects from a Parker Posey movie
Parker Posey has been one of the queens of the indies for the past two decades, and she extends this with Michael Walker's "Price Check", in which she plays a no-nonsense woman who becomes boss of a company. However, it negatively affects the home life of one of the employees.
Posey's character reminded me of her character in "The House of Yes": you grow to love them, but you'd probably be afraid to approach them. Eric Mabius's character starts out nothing like his character on "Ugly Betty", but becomes more like him. In the end, this is a movie that you truly have to appreciate: with limited resources, they made an infinitely better movie than anything that Michael Bay's ever made (as can be expected with indies). I recommend it.
