This is a great little independent film in the vein of Robert Altman or P.T. Anderson, only shorter (88 restrained minutes!) and without tragedy ensuing at every turn. Maybe Nicole Holofcener's movies (Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing) would make for a better comparison, because this film definitely has the woman's touch and not quite so much testosteroney angst. Writer/director/actress Cecil Castelucci is a working artist with many talents - her credits include songwriter, author of young adult fiction, and performance artist. No, it isn't the first movie about a handful of intertwining lives in L.A., and it won't be the last, but it's definitely one of the more watchable. I hope to see more from this director!
