Delia(Kyra Sedgwick), is an abused wife and mother, who finds personal liberation by finding the courage to finally leave her abusive husband, and then rediscovers her personal dignity and power through her sexuality.
Greta(Parker Posey), is a wife and daughter, who has lost touch with herself, first by being caught in the middle in a struggle between her powerful, ambitious father and her weaker, more fragile mother for her love and affection, then later in an act of rebellion against her father, by ending up in a loving but passionless marriage in which she has suppressed all her own personal ambitions. An opportunity for success rekindles in her all her own passions and ambition, as she struggles to finally break free from the influence of her parents, to come to terms with her husband and marriage and to be who she really is as a person.
Paula(Fairuza Balk) is a young woman, who finds herself pregnant and who after a terrible accident, in a state of shock starts out on a journey to try and escape and make sense of what is happening to her. An encounter with an abused runaway, helps her refocus on her own plight and discover her own ability to care about others besides her self.
All the acting in the film is excellent, but Parker Posey as Greta really stands out.Read more ›
This film is highly entertaining, and what's more, it gives us just enough to be satisfied without overrunning its plot into the ground. Right about the time we're ready to be done with one of the stories, a new tale flashes upon the screen and we're once again engaged in a new little ditty.
Final verdict: a very entertaining film about the lives of three women that while I cannot recommend to everyone, I do recommend to the independent film crowd out there who prefers character-driven stories with solid acting and strong plotlines.
After watching it a second time with a friend though, no little flaw that i could find in this little movie can come to stain anything from the Writing and The Director's percpective, to the 3 outsanding actresses i watched performing. I've never been a fan of Parker Posey but this time in particular, she impressed me.
Personal Velocity may not be suitable for everyone or every mood. Maybe a little too moral of a movie when one actually stops to think about its message? But if you just feel like watching a really simple, effective story about the lives of 3 average women who seem to be entangled in situations that would force anyone to make use of a supernatural strenght to overcome the odds, this is a great pick.

Enjoyable abstract movie, that may be why there are some 1 star ratings. Some people are more concrete. Most can find a little of themselves in each story.Published 6 months ago by RandZ
