Dumped Husband Learns The Importance of "Being Where You Are"
7 June 2002 | by erp-2See all my reviews

Real cool, smart movie. I loved Sheedy's colors, especially the purple car. Alice Drummond is Wise And Wonderful as Stella. I liked Sheedy's reference to how her face had gotten fatter. The roadside dance scene is brilliant. Really liked this one.
