Product Description

Rose, an optometrist paralyzed by grief, builds a wall around herself but when a patient begins to visit her office unannounced, Rose understands his loneliness and urges him to ask for help. Meanwhile Simon, a lonely teenager, photographs people from a distance and captures Rose on one of his films. The pictures result in a way out for each of them from their self-imposed exile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three Strangers Lost In The City 24 Feb 2008
The city of 8 million, and in this city Simon, Rose, and Tomás are lonely and lost souls. Their lives become entwined and we begin to see the souls of the lost.

Rose is an optometrist who has lost her two year old son who fell out of an open window. She can never forgive herself so can anyone else? She has separated from her husband and he wants to find his way back, but Rose?

Simon is a young man interested in photography,working in a photo shop and one day he sees Rose and starts photographing her. She becomes an obsession and he follows her. Simon lives with his alcoholic mother and life is difficult for them both.

Tomás is a painter and works as a mailman at a business. Rose has just told him that he is going blind. He has no family or close friends. But he is interested in a younger co-worker and their relationship takes hold.

These three people live along the 1/9 subway line and much of the story takes place in the subway. We see Rose getting off the subway and having coffee in the park before she goes to work. Simon is following her and Tomas is having increased difficulty with his vision. He cannot see to paint and he cannot tell his new love he is going blind.

Each of them is existing in a place of their own and none can ask for help. It is only when Rose confronts Simon that something changes. Rose also talks and advises Tomas about his disease and his new relationship. This contact with each other brings them back into the world and their lives can move on, to what, we are not sure.

I found Heather Graham as Rose lacking in emotion. I did not feel her pain as much as sense it, and she was unable to connect with me. Simon was excellent in his portrayal as the confused teenager.

Being a fan of Heather Graham, i was intersted in the film,for the duration it plods and only 'gels' towards the end. The acting is first rate well matched to there roles.

2.0 out of 5 stars You may well drift while watching 20 April 2011
By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If seeing Heather Graham in the buff is enough for your viewing entertainment then give this a go, but even with that considerable virtue I struggled to locate my interest in this tale of troubled people at different stages of their lives. Paths cross, entangle and things change, sort of.

Cut away the words 'adrift' and 'in' and what have you got? The name of another NYC movie which is vastly superior. Why not buy that instead.
