May 21, 2004
It plays like a walk on the wild side dreamed up in a Starbucks.

A solid character piece that deftly probes the complicity of both sides in a morally dubious relationship.

Ivey is fascinating, cooing nonstop in a cozy Southern accent, friendly and accepting, but also observant and oddly unknowable. It's a performance that even gets better on second viewing.

Sandra, Bill and Alice emerge not as a newfound family exactly, nor as villains and victims, but as three ever-vulnerable human beings doing the best they can to survive.

Bell stays focused on the interstate milieu, but it's difficult to believe a frame of it.
