Storyline

High school is over, and everybody in the small town just up the Hudson from New York City where Jim lives has made plans and moved on everybody except Jim. While his buddies head off to one Ivy League college or another, Jim rejects their upwardly-mobile choices and takes a job driving for the local cab company instead, which allows him plenty of free time to hang out, drink with the locals at John's Bar & Grill, and think back on the love affair with a married woman that, for the exquisite moment it lasted, brought passion and meaning to his life. Drawing partially on events from his own life, first time writer/director Peter Callahan tells a poignant and sometimes hilarious story about what happens when life moves on and you're not quite ready to move with it.

a touching, funny, altogether wonderful film about a boy growing to manhood
3 December 2002 | by mdavidsonSee all my reviews

This is a great film! I recommend it highly to anyone who likes a good story line, an unsappy romance, solid character development, great acting, beautiful photography, and a poignant ending.

The films captivates right from the start. I was drawn into the small town world of the main character and his sidekicks as they went about their daily quirky, yet very real lives.

The humor is p-e-r-f-e-c-t! The love story -- quite lovely. All in all a terrific film.
