A young man hitchhikes through Central America until he is faced with crossing an 80-mile gigantic swamp called the Darien Gap. This comedy adventure from Brad Anderson was a Grand Jury Prize nominee at Sundance.
A waitress hardly notices a shy busboy who secretly loves her; until one night she's attacked and he comes to her rescue. From there a relationship sparks but one secret could mean disaster for these fated lovers.
Ruby Weaver has man trouble: she tries to fix them, so she's stuck herself with a string of losers. Her current lover, Sam Deed, seems different: he's sweet, tender, just in from Dubuque. But, as Ruby tells her therapist about Sam, in flashbacks we see someone not quite of this world. In fact, Sam informs Ruby that he's from the future, 2470 to be exact. Ruby's sure he's delusional, but most of the time she wants to keep him - and maybe fix him. Although he seems sane, maybe Sam hasn't told her the real story: what's he up to, and who is Chrystie Delancey?Written by
In the shot of Sam shown just as Ruby starts the record playing during their first date in Ruby's apartment, a boom microphone is visible in the top center of the shot for approximately six frames. See more »
Murder? Oh God, Sam, murder?
It wasn't me.
Nobody could understand this, Sam, it's too much. It's too much.
I think it would be easier if I told you a little at a time. It would sink in a little at a time.
Sink in a little at a time? You... you just dropped an emotional anvil on my head. Look at me, I'm flat as a pancake.

A great, low budget indy that was very enjoyable and well made! Great storyline which can keep you involved to the very end, and you should stick around. The movie should have had better marketing when it was released so that it could have reached a larger audience.
D'nofrio plays a great character that catches you and takes you on a ride. Marissa Tomei also shines. She gives another great performance as a concerned and confused lover, burned in the past and now wondering what comes next. You can see that they had a lot of fun working on the films. Check out the cameos, they're a hoot. Especially the scene in the art show. Rent or catch on IFC and you will not be disappointed
