When a gas station is held at gunpoint by a desperate man in need of cash, a lonely and unstable gas station attendant, tired of being overshadowed by her more outgoing co-worker, finds an opportunity to make a connection with the robber.
Ed Hemsler spends his life preparing for a disaster that may never come. Ronnie Meisner spends her life shopping for things she may never use. In a small town somewhere in America, these two people will try to find love while trying not to get lost in each other's stuff.
The main reason I go to see Films is to get away from things for a couple hours and try and put myself in the shoes of the Story. This Film is a perfect one to do that with. So instead of work today, I jumped on my Bike and pedaled to the Cinema. Have been wanting to see this Film as I read some of the publicity for it and am big Fan of both the lead actors and have seen a Ton of their Films. John Lithgow and Blythe Danner Star as Ed Hemsley and Ronnie Meisner fictional characters created by Writer Director and Director of Photography NOBLE JONES. Ed and Ronnie are both on the wrong side of 60 and meet at the Grocery Store. I recommend you watch the Trailer NOW and see if this appeals to you. If so all you gotta do is put yourself in Ed and/or Ronnies Shoes and this story will wash away a Bad Day. On a personal note I am about half way thru the Masterclass online with Director Ron Howard which I also recommend, as it is an indepth class on how to bring a Story to Life on Film. Listening to Him teach his Craft is Deep. Ironically rode by a Yard Sale on the way Home and thought of how a scene could be shot.
