Storyline

Two teens tell stories about their lives while waiting at a bus stop. Judith and her brother have suffered a nomadic existence with their semi-professional ballroom dancing parents, who are now past their prime. Jimmy tells two tales. One about two women who meet up with a high-roller in Atlantic City. The second is about an infertile woman's marriage to a religious fanatic. The three stories are told in anthology style. Meanwhile, bus station denizens wander in and out. Chief among these are a bag lady and a fat cop. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

One of the most sensitive, artistic, and compelling movies I've ever seen.
12 April 2000 | by danmayoSee all my reviews

This movie is striking in many ways. The photography is literally brilliant. The color, lighting, and clarity are pure and poetic. The casting is wonderful with fascinating characters, physically and emotionally. The source material is real literature. This is one of the most sensitive, artistic, and compelling movies I've ever seen. A definite 10.
