Storyline

Strange as Angels tells the story of Marilyn Ross, a beautiful painter in Chicago who decides to leave her mundane life behind and search for inner happiness until she meets Rodney Porter, a recently divorced journalist and the two begin an intense romance. Marilyn's is a story about the complicated notion of female independence in a post-feminist era; she feels the pull of romance, sex and longing but fears that succumbing to her desire may wrench her individuality away. Marilyn's is a soul-searching journey that explores the question of whether it is better to seek happiness within oneself or rely on love for all of life's answers. Written by Neon Beach Press

It's not just about the obvious...
31 January 2007 | by atlseeSee all my reviews

This was more than guy meets girl, guy has sex with girl, the end. This was a movie about symbolism in it's rawest form. If he hadn't messed around on her would things have been different? Had she ever really considered staying in the first place or was it an act on her part from the very beginning? It was a good thinking movie and I love the way the title was explained. The female lead was written well and acted out O.K. but lacked emotion at times, real response. The male lead was very well received by myself, in other words it was realistic. I feel the best performance in the movie was given by the male best friend- I was feeling him the whole movie, congrats Inny~
