well, whether or not it was an "extraordinary" film is up for debate; i thought
it certainly thought-provoking at the least, and i thought that the acting
was excellent. kudos should also go to miranda richardson's agent for getting
HER face plastered all over the print ads, instead of steven rea's, jaye david-
son's, or even forest whittaker's.
it's a film that'll make you think about "attitudes." it was directed well,
it was acted wonderfully. i didn't think that the plot was gimmicky.
