  • Personal Velocity: Three Portraits Review
    By:

    Demonstrating that capturing a film on digital video can make for a compelling experience, writer/director Rebecca Miller, daughter of celebrated playwright Arthur Miller and wife of Daniel Day-Lewis, skillfully delivers three separate contemporary tales from her short story collection. Each sequence is blessed by terrific performances from the three female leads. The stories never overlap, except when a horrid hit-and-run accident in Manhattan touches on all their lives.

  • Role Call: Zeta-Jones goes home
    By: Kit Bowen Jun 09, 2001

    All the glamorous Catherine Zeta-Jones has to do is tap her heels three times and, just like that, she's returning to her humble homeland of Wales to do the independent film Coming Out. Under the direction of another Welshwoman, Sara Sugarman, Zeta-Jones will produce and star in the film about a Welsh rugby team whose coach unexpectedly dies. Their only hope is to rely on the deceased coach's gay son to "choreograph them to victory." But don't think Zeta-Jones is bowing out of the limelight fore

Synopsis
A tale of three women who have reached a turning point in their lives. Delia is a spirited, working-class woman from a small town in New York who leaves her abusive husband and sets out on a journey to reclaim the power she has lost. Greta is a sharp, spunky editor who is rotten "with ambition" despite her own intentions. To spite the hated infidel ways of her father, she has settled into a complacent relationship and is struggling with issues of fidelity to her kind but unexciting husband. Finally Paula, who ran away from home and got pregnant, is now in a relationship she doesn't want. She's a troubled young woman who takes off on a journey with a hitchhiker after a strange, fateful encounter on a New York street.
