A weird little indie whose opening premise, stalking, is offputting. Then, in a kind of stalker fantasy, the perpetrator (Lucas Haas) finds he himself is being stalked ... by a pretty blonde (January Jones). That this should lead to a romance is no stranger than the opening. Thank goodness one subplot is about the affection for Swedish automobiles or I'd've been tempted to be repulsed by this, and I didn't even mention the stepfather raping his stepdaughter constantly. It's only a movie.
A grown-up Lukas Haas and January Jones headline this quiet little film of two damaged souls who find each other and develop a relationship in fits and starts. Quite enjoyable character study.
Great performance by January Jones. Our other lead, Lukas Haas, is agonizingly impassive throughout (at least as directed by Derek Sieg). The music score by Josh Robertson amateurish, cheesie. The cinematography murky as hell. I wouldn't bother reviewing this except for my belief this actually came close to being a pretty good art film.
