Mel has been laid off from her office job due to downsizing, then when she goes to meet her boyfriend and tell him the bad news, he tells her that he needs his space because she's suffocating him and leaves her. And what better way to end a crappy day by being told by your doctor that you are going to die from cancer and you have two months to live.
For Mel, having been diagnosed with inoperable cancer in her throat and losing everything in her life, she contemplates ending her life but manages to see an ad about a loft being rented out for a very short time.
Mel, decides that if she's going to die, she's going to enjoy her last weeks by doing the things that she dreams of.
She rents the pretty spacious and beautiful loft, ditches all her clothing (thus living in the loft naked) and with her three credit cards, starts going on a spending rampage. Ordering a Vera Wang mattress, ordering a genuine leather couch, and so many designer vases, lamps and clothing. She also decides to change her eating habits by straying away from her vegan life and eating whatever she wants, including expensive meals and putting it all on her credit card.
But each time she sleeps, in her dreams we see how Mel, as a young girl has always desired a red electric guitar. As a child that is passionate about music, her parents never could buy her an electric guitar but she feels that why not do it now. So, she buys top notch amps, speakers and a classic electric guitar and learns to play it.Read more ›
It really is a story about what you would do if you got the news that you had a couple months to live. It does take some suspension of disbelief to be sure, but if you can get past, or accept the more unbelievable parts it is a good movie. It definitely has an indie feel to it. It was not big budget by any means so it helps if you are already a fan of those kinds of films. Saffron Burrows does a very good job considering a lot of the movie is just her reacting to things as opposed to interacting with anyone else.
It will definitely not suit everyone's tastes and you can pretty much predict what happens as the movie plays out. That said however it if you like indie movies it is definitely worth checking out.
Basically I wanted to see more about how important her guitar was to her.
It was also touted as being "fiercely erotic". I wasn't interested in that aspect - I wanted to see an almost otherworldly bond between a person and their guitar/music. But, no worries, the movie wasn't even remotely what that phrase claimed. If anything it came off seeming very "skanky" at times.
