    A wonder of American independent cinema, Claudia Weill’s pioneering gem explores the nuances and complexities of female friendship. 

    When her best friend and roommate abruptly moves out to get married, Susan, trying to be an artist while making ends meet as a bar mitzvah photographer on Manhattan's Upper West Side, finds herself adrift in both life and love.

    “A little indie gem and lo-fi miracle whose emotional force catches you glancingly.”
    Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
