I must say the little description of this movie that's given on the
back of the box at the video store (or on a live streaming service)
doesn't really do it justice. I was on the fence about watching this
movie for the longest time, just because the description made it sound
so shallow. The only reason I finally ended up watching it was because
of Mira Sorvino. I happen to adore her as an actress (ever since I saw
her in Woody Allen's "Mighty Aphrodite" where she blew me away)...and I
was not disappointed with her in this film. Her acting was beyond
excellent in this entire film. In fact, just within the first 5 minutes
of watching, she really drew me in and I found myself relating to her
troubles right off the bat.
The other actors in the film were also right on point, and to me, the acting is really what made this movie as good as it was. About 90% of this movie takes place in one central location, but it doesn't really matter, as the acting is so great you never even think about that. In my humble opinion, this movie is about 2 people who are both trying to run away from themselves, and both trying to portray a face to the world that's not really theirs. It also seems to be about things not always being what you think they are. On the surface, or at first glance, some one or some thing might look a particular way, but once you start digging deeper you find that they aren't that way at all...but something completely different and totally unexpected. It's funny because that's how the entire movie plays out too. It starts out and you think "oh I know where this is going"..and about halfway in you start thinking "wait a minute...it's not going there at all". But where it does end up going is so much sweeter than you ever could've imagined. Great movie, I highly recommend! And Mira Sorvino is one of the most underrated actresses out there...I really would love to see more of her in the future!
