What can help one woman overcome the fears, anxieties, and traumas of a lifetime? Perhaps the music of Stevie Nicks? Gypsy (Sara Rue) is a woman in her mid-twenties who is still emotionally stuck in adolescence; her job (at a drive-through photo processing center) is nothing to write home about, and her one consuming interest in life is the music of Fleetwood Mac diva Stevie Nicks. Gypsy has gone beyond collecting Stevie's records, and loves to dress up like her idol, belting out her songs in living tribute.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's two main characters are definitely worth knowing, but the movie takes them on a predictable odyssey."
‑ Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News
"It is clear that as a filmmaker Todd Stephens, like his heroes and heroines, is determined to be true to himself."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The true joy of this indie stems from the well observed friendship between Gypsy and her Goth plaything, Clive. The chemistry between the two young actors is near-wondrous."
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
"This is not a great movie, but it has some nice moments. It shows Goth kids need love too."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"Despite a thin script, Gypsy boasts moments of charm, mostly due to its appealing leads."
‑ , E! Online
"A mostly undistinguished addition to the long list of films about alienated and self-pitying young people."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"Eventually turns into pathos-clogged sludge, but before that, features a string of shrewdly observed encounters."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"By the end, you'll wish to never see another flowing scarf or hear another Fleetwood Mac song ever again."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Cineman Syndicate
"A road movie where the audience is a little skittish about going there."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"Non-core audience viewers will be reminded why we didn't hang out with people like this in high school."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"The film's main appeal stems from the two main characters, whose close relationship is well-conveyed and moving."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Saga is especially sapped of its appeal and energy by the toxically charmless titular character whose central obsession -- dressing up like Stevie Nicks and singing her material -- is curiously wedged between comedy and oddity."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Plenty of melodrama but precious little truthfulness...a very provincial item that probably shouldn't have ventured across the state line."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"[C]aptivating and pointed and... will hit disquietingly close to home to many who avow to being comfortable in their nonconformity..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Deserves to be discovered not only by Goth and gay crowds, but by anyone who runs screaming from all things average."
‑ Peter Debruge, Premiere Magazine
