A young, married motel receptionist in a small town sells her body to motel guests, but not just for money. This dangerous other life leads her to a male version of herself, who takes her to the extreme edge, the same place her mother had been before but did not survive.Written by
Depressing movie about a woman who sells her body and then, just give it away. Molly Parker is very good as Leila, the motel receptionist who gives the male clients more than just the key to their room. But the movie is a little bit too much of the same, it seems to drag for most of the film. Only the last quarter of the film were interesting enough to keep me awake.
The movie still have some very troubling moments. It reminded me of what's happening in British Columbia these days: the police is discovering bodies of missing women at a pig farm in Port Coquitlam.
Interesting the story of the little girl in parallel. Symbolic? You decide. The setting is nice too. A little motel on the side of a secondary highway.
The movie is not really interesting, I guess, because of the script that seems not to be moving. Would probably have made a good one hour tv-movie.
Out of 100, I gave it 71. That's good for ** out of **** stars.
Seen in Toronto, at the Carleton Odeon Cinemas, on April 13th, 2002.
