Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 03/01/1999
"...Coolly composed long takes and slow tracks richly lit..."
Rolling Stone - 03/05/1998
"...[Sheedy] gives a remarkable performance..."
New York Times - 06/12/1998
"...The actors immerse themselves deeply....Ms. Sheedy reinvents herself as a tough, fascinating presence, while Ms. Mitchell's earnest bewilderment also serves the story well..."
Box Office - 06/01/1998
"...Compelling characters..."
Premiere - 07/01/1998
"...Cholodenko gives her film a languorous pace and hothouse atmosphere that wok beautifully with the buildup of strong emotions..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/12/1998
"...Sheedy plays Lucy with a strength that gradually falls away as a fa├žade over her vulnerability, and Mitchell is a revelation....Together they provide some of the most honest and hotly passionate romance you'll find in theaters this year..."
Wall Street Journal - 07/09/2010
"Ms. Cholodenko's debut feature is slow-paced but interesting, especially for the quality of the acting."

Product Description:

Ally Sheedy stars as Lucy Berliner, a once-famous photographer, whose career has been revitalized when she meets Syd (Radha Mitchell), a beautiful young assistant editor for a prestigious photography magazine. Withdrawn from the art world, Lucy is reawakened by Syd who offers her the hope of escaping her drug-filled world. Before Syd realizees it, she is drawn into Lucy's seductive and dangerous mix while forced to make choices she never imagined. A challenging film that raises interesting questions as to how objective a person can be about art, especially when they are involved in the creative process.
