A hothouse flower of a movie; it finally gives Ally Sheedy a three-dimensional role...
Hard, tough, occasionally dream-like drama involving a drug-abusing lesbian photographer who's currently on "hiatus"; lured back into the professional world by a pretty art-magazine gopher, she finds herself in the middle of an affair. Emotionally intense movie is sharp and focused, though hurt by a puzzling finish. Ally Sheedy's award-winning performance as the shutterbug is one of her finest. It took a long time for Sheedy to reach the point where she could appear in a film like this and not seem out of place; her acting is getting more refined with age, and her brave turn here appears to put her juvenile romps (like, say, "Short Circuit") to bed. Radha Mitchell is also very good as the post-teen who falls for her. Gripping, moving film. *** from ****
