Holly G. is a successful clothing designer with her own boutique who, in the course of a tumultuous Mother's Day weekend, is confronted with deceit, elation, desperation, kleptomania, rebellion, addiction and passion while under pressure to pull off the biggest sale of the year. Looks at the unique role that clothing and shopping plays in the lives of women. In addition to the story line, the comedy is peppered with testimonials from the women within the film who "confess" the real and all too often unacknowledged role that shopping plays in their lives.Written by
I've seen this movie at the Jerusalem Film Festival in a packed theater, which applauded at the end credits. It certainly provides an excursion into the psyche of an American shopper and, most importantly, shopkeeper. Though being screamingly low-budget, it's thought-provoking and pleasant, not mentioning the genuine idea of setting the whole film to a piano "boutique music" playing in the background, having a soothing and alarming effect at the same time. On the other hand, people were leaving in the middle, which is understandable - perhaps it is a 'girl movie' after all, who else would enjoy watching a love story unfolding among clothes hangers.
