Duncan, a philosophical nomad hitchhiking across America, grabs a ride to Ann Arbor, Michigan from Toad - a performance artist and purple leisure slacks enthusiast from the suburbs.

Jenny currently sees a suicidal therapist four times a week and armed with her acoustic guitar, drives away patrons from a local coffee house where she slings cappuccinos with her best friend Squeeze. Squeeze is a closet genius whose easy-going outlook and unconditional support keep her live-in boyfriend Hank from the brink. Hank is a painter who can't paint because he spends his time baking delicious pastries and practicing for the Oprah Winfrey Show.

The obvious being the people that were exploited to make it possible; the not so obvious being us, the first group of people that were given no obvious frontiers to conquer. We hear stories about the good old days that ...

impressed by Boston screening
26 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of catching this film in its limited theatrical release in Boston some years ago, and I remember it as one of the more impressive independent films. Wry dialogue and beautiful pacing allow the film to follow several groups of characters whose stories resolve and combine beautifully by the end. Looking forward to seeing more work from this team.
