Storyline
They're in their 20s. He works in a video store; he's eager, chatty, sleeps in his car. She rents adult films, looks disheveled, rarely speaks. He chats her up, she brushes him off. He takes her address from store records and contrives to run into her. He rings her doorbell; she tells him to go away. He invents a story of a great-aunt who's died; she lets him in but holds a butcher knife between them. So it goes. He presses for a relationship; she ignores him, insults him, or yells. He's persistent, inviting her out, cooking, washing her hair. Both have demons and, as their natures become more clear, his addictive personality and her sex nausea may be on a collision course.

User Review

Real life issues brought to life

Rating: 8/10


I saw this movie last night at the Birmingham Sidewalk Moving Picture
Festival during the encore showing and really just fell in love with
it. The plot was in depth, the characters were amazing, and while some
parts of the movie would keep you laughing, there was a deeper meaning
hidden in the movie that was very moving. I think everyone watching the
movie could find a certain aspect of a character, situation, argument,
etc, that they could connect with. The movie put real life issues that
many struggle with in perspective. It was not sugar coated or over done
but was reality. I loved everything about it and would love to see it
again.
