Synopsis: Three things happen to shake up a single mother's life: she gets a new boss, an old boyfriend calls her up, and her wandering brother drops by for a visit.
Great movie. The acting is superb and the story is simple but, most importantly, real. The characters are flawed and, in non-Hollywood fashion, the ending doesn't wrap everything up nicely for us. Problems aren't solved and everybody doesn't live happily ever after. They just go on with their slightly screwed up lives... like the rest of us do.
I recommend it.Added 12 November 2002 at 11:12 AM
