Q: What’s the movie about?

A: Two lonely meter maids (Samantha Morton and Jason Patric) enter into an emotionally abusive relationship that just might have a chance of working.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Samantha Morton, Jason Patric, Teri Garr, Illeana Douglas, Sonia Iris Lozada, Jonny Mack, Joanne Baron

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. This movie has moments of twisted genius, the likes of which haven't been seen since the indies of the 90s, such as Happiness, Chuck and Buck, and In the Company of Men. If that sounds good to you, get out there and see this one.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Squeal is more like it, as your laughter will be squirming its way through your reluctant gut on its way out of your mouth.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: That depends on how many parking tickets you're in the habit of getting.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Yes, it will be up for at least 4 Independent Spirit Awards-- pick any category you'd like.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Jason Patric is a Tour de Force. And yes, I've been dying for the right opportunity to use that expression, which literally translated means, "Other actors will bow down and kneel in his presence." Don't question me, I speak French!

Q: How is the Directing?

A: Sometimes it draws a bit too much attention to itself, panning around for no reason. But it's nice to see a first time feature director taking a few risks-- so long as they don't interfere with my viewing pleasure.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: Darkly comic, sadly realistic, and cringe inducing... in a good way.

Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?

A: There are a few scenes that take place on the street where I live. So if you're thinking about stalking me, there's a clue.
