“Affairs are tempestuous, indeed, for a substitute teacher and struggling novelist; a pot-dealing single mother; and a sexually reckless French exchange student, all sharing a house in Oakland. But their intertwining lives, and the lives of those they touch, are brought to the screen with such tenderness and grace that you root for them to make it through the storm.”
-- Mill Valley Film Festival program notes


“Solidly in the tradition of pioneer indie pics like Cassavetes' Shadows…fests looking to showcase new Amerindie talent should take note.”

“It just goes to prove what genius can do when pressed… 82 minutes of insight…If you agree with me that movies depend on pictures to be a true art form, remember these names. Expanded, their funds will produce masterpieces.”

“Emotionally satisfying, tightly scripted…there is bravery too in the filmmaking…This may be a Scared New World for some, but for most, it augurs a bright future of filmmaking.”
