She gets a new neighbor, Imogene, who sells a Mary Kay type line of cosmetics. Imogene is upbeat, friendly and black which doesn't bode well with Anora's husband or kids. But she's the only person in Anora's life that pays her any attention and shows her any kindness. The two end up falling for each other and during a sexual interlude Anora's husband (drunk) comes in and goes bananas. He pulls a gun but things go wrong and he's the the one who ends up getting shot by Anora. The two women dump his body in the trunk of Imogene's car. Anora grabs her two kids and they all head to Savannah, where Imogene's boss lives, to dispose of the body. It's a shortish road trip but all come to new understandings in their lives.
This is pretty light stuff. It's shot on the cheap but looks good to the point of not being detrimental to the viewing experience. The only actors recognizable to me were Anora, played by Laura Harring and her husband played by Oded Fehr. The production, overall, is even handed. Most of the performances are pretty good and it's dotted with some quirky animation sprung from the doodlings of Anora's daughter.
The writing is really what makes this worthwhile. It IS quirky. A lot of unexpected things happen and everything moves a brisk pace. It clocks in at an hour twenty five so you won't sit there looking at your watch. The performances match the quirkiness of the script.Read more ›
This was a lot better than I originally expected. Actually, if you just lower your expectations, you'll enjoy it tons more, lol. It's a peg or two up from the usual film school looking cheesy lez-themed movies with a much more enjoyable script. Just my kind of evil-goofy humor.
Here we meet the lovely but extremely passive Anora Fleece (Laura Harring), a verbally and physically abused housewife in the mostly white little town of Catoosa, Oklahoma. Her husband is a complete racist and misogynist jackass who gets abused at work and seems to take it out on his wife. Her two high school aged kids are little demon spawn in the making and abuse their mother as well as only oakie little teens from dysfunctional families in small towns can. It's a pathetic existence. When Anora is alone she escapes her reality by slipping into her usual idyllic fantasies of her husband being a good and decent man... one she can actually be in love with and be attracted to.
When the beautiful and charismatic Imogene Cochran (Jill Marie Jones) moves in, this new neighbor brings in a tangible good mood and plenty of perkiness into Anora's dreary life. Imogene is a successful Kathy K cosmetics representative and she showers Anora with makeup, moisturizers, and mudpacks and soon begins to beautify her bleak little world. They bond over coffee and girlie talk and Anora's intimate fantasies soon carry the face of her attractive new friend. However, Imogene is also a black woman and Anora's racist white husband (and kids) soon finds out and isn't about to let her set foot in their home. All hell inevitably breaks loose and Anora shoots her husband dead out of self defense.Read more ›
The only thing I did not like about the movie is that it was not long enough to see the romance/intimacy between the women.
When beautiful and vivacious Imogene (Jill Marie Jones) moves in next door, they become friends despite her husband's bigoted attitude. Anora and Imogene's relationship becomes closer over coffee and long conversations about life and the Kathy K cosmetics that Imogene sells. When Anora's husband Cheb catches the women kissing on their bed, he freaks out and tries to kill them. Wrestling the gun out of his grasp, Anora accidentally shoots him.
Imogene brilliantly takes control of the situation and leads Anora and her two teen-aged kids on an adventure in her huge bright purple Kathy K Cosmetics car (with Cheb in the trunk). Imogene takes them to Savannah to visit the one and only Kathy K (Ruthie Austin). Once there, Kathy K relocates Cheb to her bathtub for safekeeping, but how long can a dead body stay there before it is discovered?
Director Nancy Kissam creates a darkly funny romp, which at the heart of it all, is about an abused woman who regains her life, self-worth and finds love. Scene stealing Jill Marie Jones is hilarious as the wisecracking Imogene. Laura Harring is fantastic as the sad and pathetic Anora who blossoms at the hands of Imogene.
