The US DVD release is 5 minutes shorter than the theatrical version (91 as opposed to 96 minutes). The most noticeable cut is in the sex scene which is slightly briefer than the original. See more »
An uptight professor goes to Reno in 1959 to get a divorce and starts having feelings for a brash, young lesbian. In an impressive debut as a feature film director, Deitch does a good job of evoking the place and the period. Shaver brings the right touch of restraint and subdued passion to the role of the professor while Charbonneau is a bundle of energy as the woman who aggressively pursues her. Also good are Lindley as Charbonneau's mother and Akers as Charbonneau's friend. Although not graphic, the love scene between Shaver and Charbonneau is quite steamy. There isn't much of a plot but it's worthwhile spending some time with these characters.
