Quotes

Man on the Hill: [First Lines] We are all magnets, we're just magnets. Put next to each other. You know when magnets repel when they are too close? That's what they do. It doesn't change their purpose when you put them close together. But sometimes it's too much, so they cancel each other out.

2 July 2002 | by subcityiiSee all my reviews

I saw this film while voting for the Independent Spirit Awards and I must say it had many of my favorite performers. William Hurt, Amy Madigan, Sean Penn (whose company helped make the movie), Joanna Cassidy, Paul Dooley and Jennifer Rubin is like a dream cast to me. I couldn't wait for them to be put to good use. Sadly, they were given almost nothing interesting to do. It has a good setup, it is about the damage that happens in abusive relationships, specifically what people are willing to endure in order to feel loved. The project was not structured or developed very well, however. I think the script needed a few more drafts because the situations needed more urgency or more weight. Most good independent films take you on an emotional or spiritual journey and this film just did not do that.
