Interesting Film That Reminds Me of Bus Stop
21 January 2000 | by savanna-2See all my reviews

Solid ensemble cast, featuring, Sharon Farrell (Emily) as the younger sister of Steven Hill (Ed). This duo, whose parents are no longer alive, end up at a road side inn, in a seaside town, that is little more than a "wide spot" in the road.

For reasons that would give too much of the plot away, they have been on the move. With their car broken down, Ed has to take a job at the local service station. This is how we get to know the rest of the cast, including Elaine Stritch as Marge.

I found this movie to be tightly written, well filmed, and could be considered "film noir." Give it a chance, the next time it's shown on one of the classic movie stations. Don't think it is available on video at this time. I think it may be mostly overlooked because of the lack of any "big name" stars.
