A story about two friends who grow apart as they grow up, this is an accurate portrayal of a part of life we can all relate to. We are all constantly faced with change, and here Claude and Ellen are dealing with just that. I believe it is true, that sometimes you just get stuck in the wrong crowd. Ellen turned down the wrong lane when she continued to see her drug user/loser/violent boyfriend, Mark. It is only too sad that she did not see the concern coming from her dear friend Claude, as well as all the other RED flags along the way that she is SCREWING UP! Alison Folland (Claude) did an excellent work of communicating her confusion and pain over her selfish (& stupid) friend, Ellen, and other losses she faces. Claude has to deal with the fact that she is in love with Ellen, even though she is not fully reciprocating...so this complicates matters even more for her - having to identify her sexuality and learn to deal with it. This is a great story of change - not predictible - you feel sad for Ellen, but glad that Claude finds in herself the strength to move on from her dependence on her friend and love, who only became a stranger. Anything like that ever happen to you? You'll like this.
