      I rented this because I am a huge Lili Taylor fan. She has something that other actresses don’t have which is guts. She’s not conventionally pretty, but always manages to look so in her films.

      At any rate, this story is about a housewife who removes herself from underneath

      • Julie (Taylor).

        The two engage in a lesbian love affair. And I have to admit that I didn’t see that one coming.

        Seeing these two get mushy was weird. I’ve watched gay and lesbian films before.

        But somehow this storyline just seemed out of place. I

        wanted so much to like the film, and found that I kept looking for more.

        But there was no more. In fact, the movie seemed quite incomplete.

        It just seemed like something was missing.
