Charming and full of heart

Quirky and funny with a big 'ol heart on its sleeve. Beautifully shot in black and white by top Hollywood Director of Photography, John Bailey. A wonderful cast led by Lea Thompson who sweeps us up in the charm of the film.

Great performances all around especially from Lea Thompson who does especially intimate and touching work - and Raymond Cruz's male escort is nothing like his performance as Tuco from Breaking Bad - he's a fun performer to watch.

Pagano directs a smart and sexy film with moving performances. The theatrical device of the "ten tricks" is a clever device and a great way into the stories of his characters. Thumbs up!

I thought it was an excellent film

I was truly impressed with the overall production values of the film. John Bailey, the cinematographer, is one of the best in the business, and I thought he did a terrific job on what was probably a very low budget film. The other production values were also terrific, and the performances were some of the best I've seen in a film of this size. And I also was intrigued by the fact that the four or five actors in the movie play all the male roles; it's a little unclear but I think it may have something to do with the idea that all these men represent a kind of Everyman image.

Lea Thompson was also terrific in the film, especially in the last scene, with the sheriff (I won't mention how it ends, which is I guess something of a "surprise" ending). The other women in the film are beautiful, and there are many great comedic scenes as well to lift this film above the average.

I read somewhere that the film was based on a play that was produced originally in Los Angeles and was a hit there. I can understand some of the limitations of the script because of that, since it does tend to read like a play on film rather than a film. But even with that, I still found it a really smart, funny, moving film about the flaws of humans, and our basic need to move on in our lives.

I'd certainly like to see more from these filmmakers.
