Movie Info

When stage fright gets the best of her, a former actress (Marin Ireland) stops leaving her apartment, crippled by fear of the outside world. Living off delivery food and residuals from her acting career, she spends her days watching bad TV and spying on the city from her window. But when her toilet overflows and a kind, compassionate plumber (Paul Sparks) shows up, she reluctantly allows him into her refuge. A tender, comical love story, grounded by exceptional performances by Ireland and Sparks. (c) Tribeca

Given that the opening shot shows the heroine on the toilet, what a nice surprise to find that this is a pure love story, told with elegance and simplicity on a low budget.

Sparks' oddball, self-deprecatory charm and Ireland's uncertainties play off each other nicely as their eclectic tastes mesh; both characters are thrilled at finding someone who accepts and even welcomes the other's peculiarities.

Marin Ireland and Paul Sparks deliver terrific performances in this charmingly quirky love story.

[A] disarmingly offbeat romance ...

Basically a two-hander, Sparrows Dance could be easily adapted for the stage, but writer-director Noah Buschel uses plenty of cinematic tools to fancy up his simple story.
