Ivana Milicevic (Rachel) was in the movie Head Over Heals. That movie as well as this movie use the line/joke "I've got the runs, I mean I've gotta run!" See more »
When Ashley and Veronica are talking after breakfast in the cabin (1 hr 26 min), you can see a very small bug flying around. Anne Heche plays it off nicely by blowing at it and staying in character. See more »
Why are you helping me?
I am not. I'm actually taking great joy in seeing you like this. I mean, your life is over. You can't paint, you lost your girlfriend, you lost your baby.

There's a really good movie in here, trying to escape and transcend the trashy selling point of girl-on-girl violence. When it comes, it is shocking and over-extended, in a way that can only mean someone is getting a kick out of it, thus cheapening the film and taking it perilously close to Russ Meyer, "Faster, Pussycat" territory. Then there's the lesbian couple, who don't get violent but who do a lot of tongues, again unnecessary and overdone. Underneath it all is a fresh and original take on family relations, mother-daughter jealousy, pseudiness in the art scene, etc.
