Storyline

This Spike Lee film examines the life of an aspiring actress in New York. She is upset by the treatment of women in the movie industry during one of her screen tests with 'QT'. Out of work and desperate for money, she decides to take a job as a phone-sex operator. Here, unlike her previous dealings with potential employers, her (female) boss is kind, caring, and sensitive. Later, she begins to get too engrossed in her work and starts to lose touch with reality, represented by her friend and neighbor, Jimmy. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Great acting, fascinating portrayal of breakdown
4 July 1999 | by alanjjSee all my reviews

This movie goes nowhere, but is endlessly fascinating getting there. Theresa Randle plays an actress trying to get a part who is _not_ willing to do anything. But when the opportunity comes to make money by fulfilling sexual fantasies on the phone, she takes to it with relish. She then slowly breaks down, no longer able to stand her own pain and loneliness and longing. This is partly comedy, partly drama, and thoroughly well-acting, with mesmerizing directorial touches.
