Three Women

Amos Lassen

Three very different women whose lives come together at the steam room of their local gym is the subject of the new film, "Steam" (Wolfe Releasing). Each of the women is at a place in her life where it seems as if nothing new is happening. The women seem to have stopped growing and it is not until each of the women becomes involved in a relationship do they finally come into their own. This is a women's movie and what it does is get them to talk about the things in their lives that make them who they are.
Doris (Ruby Dee) is a widow who is lonely and is mourning her husband's death. She was once an active church member but she no longer participates. When she meets August, she finds herself finding happiness again but that is shattered bu August's family who think she is just trying to use August for money.
Laurie (Ally Sheedy) is a "soccer mom" whose husband has been having an affair with a younger woman while attempting to turn Laurie's son against her. A bitter divorce ensued and Laurie is disheartened by it and the custody battle. Her life takes a turn when she becomes involved with a younger man. Laurie is encouraged throughout by her best friend, Jacky (Chelsea Handler).
Elizabeth (Kate Siegel) is a college student who lives on campus but her parents still dominate her life. They live close and demand that Elizabeth accompany them to church every Sunday. Trying to breakaway, Elizabeth meets Niala (Reshma Shetty) in her gender studies class. The two women fall in love and Elizabeth is forced to face her parents' wrath.
The acting is superb throughout and the cast is wonderful. Everything about the film is excellent and Dee and Siegel shine. The story is realistic and the direction by Kate Schnicker is perfect.
Good story

"If you've seen "Playing by Heart" you'll enjoy this film.
It's touching and sweet.
It will make you laugh and cry.
The acting was strong.

The story was easy to follow and kept my
attention throughout the film.
