Storyline
Elizabeth's heart is broken. For solace, she drops in late at night a few times at Jeremy's diner for blueberry pie a la mode; they talk. Once, he watchers her sleep, her head on the counter. Abruptly, she leaves New York City to get away from her pain. She works a couple of jobs in Memphis. There, a heart-broken cop is drinking himself into oblivion, his ex occasionally showing up where he drinks and Lizzy works. Then, she's in Nevada, working at a casino where she uses her savings (she wants a car) to stake Leslie, a busted gambler, in a high rollers' game. After, Beth drives Leslie to Vegas where Leslie's estranged father lives. Broken relationships. What about Jeremy?

Quotes:

Elizabeth:
The last few days, I've been learning not to trust people and I'm glad I've failed. Sometimes we depend on other people as a mirror to define us and tell us who we are and each reflection makes me like myself a little more.



User Review

Nice movie, like a slow song in a shady café

Rating: 8/10


The film is all about mood. If you are not in it, you will not like the
movie. My recommendation is to watch it at night, in bed, with no
worries on your mind or things to do. It is not something really great,
but it soothes the soul like one of those old road books.

The story itself is more of a three parter, each section detailing a
mindset and the situations that define it. You see the hopeless
romantic, the one person who let the other inside instead of just
sticking to the outside, and for whom losing the other is worst than
death; then there is the rebellious daughter that loves and hates her
father until it's to late to do anything either way; and of course, the
story of Nora Joneses and Jude Law's characters.

Bottom line: lay comfy in your bed and listen to the slow rhythms of
the music while digesting the human nature presented in the film. In
the end it is worth watching.
