Every so often in a movie you come across a characterization that goes beyond the theme and text of the movie itself and provides a portrayal of a character that could be taken as a whole and used as the basis for a separate movie. Such is the character of J.R. portrayed by Camilla Griggs which, surprisingly, is rarely commented upon by reviewers of this movie. Too often she is seen only in contrast with Loretta's feelings and as the antagonist but her character, her personality, what she's looking for and how she goes about it and about meeting her needs is unusual and she could be viewed separately and appreciated. My suggestion is to watch the movie through once and then watch it a second time, paying particular attention to the character of J.R., to how she relates to her newly come by job, her newly come by girlfriend and the others in her life including Loretta. I'm amazed that I haven't seen Camilla Griggs in anything else because she's certainly a talent.
