This is all fairly safe, fairly familiar territory and most of you who have watched more than a few indie films set in Manhattan are going to recognize it. Parker, a terrific actress who doesn’t get nearly as much credit as she deserves, is wasted in a generic role.
Noth channels Rip Torn here and does a fairly stellar job in a role of an utter S. In fact, most of the women here have very little depth to their parts.
This is certainly a case where the script could have used a woman’s touch.
There are some good ideas here but for the most part the writing takes safe, established routes rather than blazing new trails.
There’s nothing here that seems to have much of a voice – and that’s essential to a film like this.
