A subdued, atmospheric, finely crafted independent picture.
The film is as listless as its self-absorbed heroine.
Nunez's best film to date--The nominal plot is less important than the sharp observation of how a young woman in crisis (Ashley Judd at the top of her form) deals with life's inevitable frustrations until she reaches inner quietness.
Judd shines like the movie star she was destined to become.
A great film about a woman running from her life and inadvertantly finding it.
Focuses on the inner life of one sensitive young woman as she ponders the meaning of love, loneliness, fear, intimacy and independence.
Judd is a most appealing performer with great screen presence. Here is your chance to see a genuine rising star in the early stages of her career.
One of the best evocations of smalltown living, capturing the mundane emptiness and the yearning for more from life. Ashley Judd is really great in this as Ruby trying to find a way to break free from her retail sales & trailer park existence.
