Goofs

At the audition of Alec with Liz, it is established that Alec lives on the fifth floor while Isabel lives on the third floor. But at the beginning of the movie, Isabel comes downstairs from her apartment and passes another apartment door near the stairs. Approximately five seconds after she passes, Alec comes out of THAT apartment with his dog. Since when is the fifth floor at a lower level than the third floor? See more »

Why I love independent movies.
23 June 2006 | by jaybobSee all my reviews

Heights is an independent film starring Glenn Close & featuring Up & coming actors from TV & film, Many of who I did not recognize.

We follow a small group of people for one full day,In one way or another they are all connected.

This is an intelligent well written script, very well acted, You (I at least) had a feeling that either I know or would like to know each member of the cast.

There are all sorts of relationships here,including very well handled gay ones.

Being an independent film with no special effects, it did not play in too many theatres. This is one of the tragedies of current film distribution. I saw it on cable TV, . It is available for rent.

I highly recommend this film. You will not be disappointed.

Rating ***1/2 out of 4, 92 points out of 10, IMDb 9 out of 10.
