Lisa Cholodenko’s feature film debut centers of the lives of Syd (Radha Mitchell), a twentysomething professional living with her boyfriend, and downstairs neighbors Lucy (Ally Sheedy), an adrift photographer and Greta (Patricia Clarkson), a former Rainer Werner Fassbender superstar whose life now revolves around heroin. Syd and Greta’s relationship is transformative for them both, and Cholodenko’s tender filmmaking offers heartwrenching, heady intimacy. Winner of the 1998 Sundance screenwriting award.
