An Operatic tale
Jake and Ella cross paths in a fleeting movement when their bumper cars run into each other. Thus begins a romance that is totally bliss, but unfortunately because of Jake's insecurities he seeks refuge in the arms of other women. Ella loves Jake so much, that she takes a chance in a 'soul machine' and allows Jake to keep fooling around. An operatic tale, that blends love, passion, and a parade of 'hootchies' I saw this movie as part of the Atlanta Film Festival and the creator Bill Plympton shared how his inspiration was from a page from his life. Pympton met a women and knew she was the one, she moved in and it was a disaster. He utterly grew to hate her but still had the passion to want sex with her. The movie Cheatin' harps on the complexity of human relationships and how sometimes those cheating hearts are not so black and white. Cheatin' is told using the language of dance and song, no words are ever conveyed but the images flow the emotions of this fun and endearing tale.
