Storyline

In the metropolis of Rain City which is run under a military state, Wanda's Café is the meeting point for several individuals, who, in the words of Lt. Gunther of the police department, are converging on "the shit (they're) wallowing in". Former Rain City police officer John Hawkins - Hawk to his friends - has just been released from prison where he served eight years for murder, a crime to which he readily admits. He killed Fat Adolph, a mobster, in an effort to clean up the streets and protect the ones he loved. He has returned to Wanda's - Wanda who was his former lover - to restart his life. Straightforward Wanda still loves Hawk, but is not in love with him, and as such offers him a place to stay with no strings. Wanda has just hired largely innocent Georgia to work in the café. Penniless Georgia and her husband Coop have just arrived in Rain City with their infant son Spike in the run-down camper in which they live. They believed moving to the city - their first time ever in ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Wanda's Cafe was created for the film in an empty location at 113 Blanchard Street in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood. It was so realistic that people sometimes walked in off the street, thinking it was a real cafe. Since the film came out, it has been the location of several real-life restaurants. See more »

Lori Singer is pure talent
20 June 2008 | by improntedipioggiaSee all my reviews

I love this movie. Like Robert Altman, alumni Alan Rudolph is a great director of actors. Caradine, Kristofferson, Divine and Bujold are strong and magnetic; they give extraordinary performances. But the most brave and terrific is Lori Singer. I loved her in "Fame" and I loved her acting in "Short Cuts". Not only she is an incredible beauty and a talented artist, but she is only a sensitive actress. In "Trouble in mind" she is incredible and she was nominated for an Independet Spirit Award for her powerful performance. I hope she will star in a new movie as soon as possible. I hope too that she will star again in a movie by Alan Rudolph, which is a maestro.
