Storyline

Alessa Woo works at an upscale downtown Toronto private art gallery, she who has among the keenest eyes for art in the city. For those not in the know, Alessa comes from a wealthy Chinese family still in Asia. For those in the know, she is really plain old Ellen Woo who is trying to escape her working class Scarborough upbringing.

She, however, does have her standards, and as such doesn't give Nathan, who is trying to woo her to the point of stalking her, the time of day. Without even knowing him, she dreams of marrying someone like Brad Unger, the local magazines which list him number one of the top forty under forty in the city. Into her life comes Ben Crowchild, a First Nations up and coming artist who moves into the same rooming house where she lives, the two who end up sharing ... Written by Huggo

Did not care for
18 January 2002 | by furgaSee all my reviews

I saw the film as well and was not blown away by. I did like the film visually, but felt that the actors were too set and too mechanical. Thought the choices were boring as well. The director shows promise, but will need to have much more vision on her future casting choices.
