Rated R 2005

First-time director Chris Terrio and playwright Amy Fox attack the big questions of life -- art, love, the pursuit of happiness -- like a couple of nervy kids diving off the high board into the pool. The result is a kind of quirky, high-toned soap opera in which five striving New Yorkers of the "creative class" have to make hard decisions about their futures in a period of 24 hours. Elizabeth Banks is the photographer with cold feet about her upcoming wedding, Glenn Close the Broadway diva whose husband has gone astray, Jesse Bradford the idealistic young actor with issues, John Light the magazine writer struggling with his new assignment -- a notoriously difficult British photographer who's invaded all the other characters' lives, more or less. Despite some post-adolescent melancholy, this is a promising debut; sad to say, it is also the last film produced by Ismail Merchant, overseer of the universally respected Merchant Ivory Productions.
