"As usual, the uniquely beautiful Lili Taylor is cast as a plain, inhibited woman and once again, she takes a role that must have seemed fairly bland on paper and fills it with what starts as a bud and becomes a bloom. She portrays a child-woman without much hope and a delicate psyche.
Guy Pearce once again shows his versitility by portraying a talented singer whose career is stagnant due mostly to his Dylanesque monologues. He's the epiomy of the misunderstood artist, who has so much to say but no one cares to hear it.
Lili Taylor is the perfect mix of subtle and shocking, while on her road to an improbable life with Pearce. I found the scenes between her and her father very touching, as well. While waiting for the tragic outcome that seems inevitable, the movie unfolds so much like life. Slowly; two steps forward, one step back.
I was left unexplainably moved by the movie. Somewhere in the middle, it grabs your emotions without you even being aware of it. You really CARE what becomes of these two different yet equally lost people, and the end, while realistic, doesn't dissapoint."
Unforgettable and inspired, that's for sure...

"I really liked this movie on a lot of levels. Incredible acting from EVERYONE --inspired acting from many members of the cast. I liked the WHOLE MOVIE, except for the contact lens scene. Now, I have to read the book!"
