In the end, Cindy discovers that she must act as her own emancipator in order to free herself from the role… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The accessible and appealing Ms. Luft is a strong anchor. And Ms. Berman can be funny (especially with a black-and-white Ingmar Bergman send-up). It's intriguing to imagine what she could do with a tighter, more linear script."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"Caught somewhere between an overwrought and interminable student film and an affectionately incompetent Ed Wood production. After two viewings, I don't know entirely how to feel about the experience, and that, to me, says it's an essential one."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Quirky, disarming movie about a woman looking for answers to her troubled life has much to recommend."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
