Zoe Adler (Robin Tunney) is a lonely nerd working at a hip online company. Her ice-queen boss, Brynn (indie rock idol Liz Phair), doesn't respect her, and her gorgeous coworker, Andrew (Jason Priestley), is friendly, but unaware of her lust for him. After a work party, a stalker assaults Zoe, hiding in her car and forcing her to drive. They run a red light, hit and kill a cop, and the stalker disappears into the night. Zoe is taken into custody and is soon sent home wearing an electronic bracelet that makes it impossible for her to leave her apartment. As the weeks pass until her trial, Zoe spends her time roller skating around her loft and watching her neighbors. Deputy Bill (Tim Blake Nelson) periodically stops by to check on Zoe, and in time they fall in love. When Zoe proclaims her innocence to Bill, he gives her a nine-hour window in which to go out and find the stalker who's really responsible for the cop's death. This unlikely comedy, directed by Finn Taylor (DREAM WITH THE FISHES), is driven by Tunney's irresistible charm in the role of Zoe. In addition, the entire film is bathed in the nostalgic sounds of pop music from the 1970s and '80s, featuring eclectic hits from Hall and Oates, The Human League, and Modern English Brad Hunt, Robin Tunney, Liz Phair, Lindsay Crouse, and Tim Blake Nelson
Cherish starts out with a promising idea: An erratic young woman named Zoe (Robin Tunney, The Craft, Niagara, Niagara) under house arrest with a bracelet around her ankle that sets off an alarm if she tries to leave her apartment, begins an unlikely romance with Bill (Tim Blake Nelson, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Good Girl), the lonely guy who monitors the bracelet. Unfortunately, about halfway through the movie mutates into a poorly thought-out thriller, in which Zoe tries to trap the stalker who got her arrested in the first place. Tunney and Nelson are both engaging, inventive actors; if the movie had trusted their charm, instead of trying to concoct implausible plot twists, this could have been delightful. Also featuring Jason Priestley, Nora Dunn, and indie rock star Liz Phair. --Bret Fetzer
I like this movie and for the first time I saw it in its entirety. Tunney does a self absorbed clueless girl very well and Tim Blake Nelson is a favorite actor.Published 5 months ago by Waterdog
