Editorial Reviews

Newcomer Jeannine Kaspar delivers a stunning performance as Sam, a troubled single mother who risks losing custody of her young daughter following a failed suicide attempt. Over the next few shaky weeks, Sam is released from the hospital into the care of her overbearing older sister, finds a job, makes tentative steps towards a new romance and tries to reconnect with her child. But lives and depression sometimes have a way of making their own rules. Can a woman lost somewhere between hope and despair find the strength to put all her pieces back together? Sayra Player co-stars in this powerful independent drama from writer/producer/director Joe Maggio (VIRGIL BLISS, MILK AND HONEY) that critics and audiences nationwide praise for its honest portrait of one woman s emotional instability and survival.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

"Paper Covers Rock," is an independent movie written and directed by Joe Maggio is about Sam played by Jeannine Kaspar who is a troubled mother struggling to put her life back together and get custody of her daughter after a suicide attempt. It was made in 2008 but is just now being released on DVD on Tuesday, May 4, 2010.

Sam's six-year-old daughter walks in on her after attempting to asphyxiate herself. After a stay in a psychiatric hospital, she moves in with her loving, neat-freak, older sister, Ed played by Sayra Player. Kaspar fantastically captures the symptoms of depression and isolation as she struggles in her recovery but has difficulty reconnecting, even with the people she loves the most like her sister and daughter. She keeps seeing a therapist played by Clint Jordan and develops an interest in rebuilding a bicycle. When a literal game of Rock-Paper-Scissors broke out to determine the price of a bike wheel, it definitely brought a smile to my face along with Sam's. Kaspar dwells on being as minimal as possible in her performance and it pays off when she finds events that do get her incredibly emotional and vocal making them stand out all the more.

Sayra Player's portrayal of Ed is worth noting due to her earnest goodwill toward her sister, her attention to the tiniest differences in emotion, and topping it all off with possessiveness of her space and a serious perfectionist streak. Sam is not allowed in Ed's room but Ed might pop into Sam's to check on her collection of saran-wrap and play watchdog.

This film follows Sam, a woman/mother trying to rebuild her life, after a suicide attempt. Jeannine Kaspar's performance as Sam is intense and worthy of any and every award. I look forward to discovering writer, director, producer Joe Maggio's other work. This film is real, intimate, uncomfortable and hypnotic.
