Zee, a paranoid New Yorker, walks around Manhattan streets talking to herself after her husband has left her. At a sidewalk café, she runs into Eli. A very unlikely and touching relationship develops between two lost souls in the big city.
A philosophical romcom of midlife neurosis, Henry Jaglom’s improvised wonder features a tremendous central turn from Karen Black. Intimate and uninhibited, it’s a great New York movie from a true iconoclast of American independent cinema. Look out for a bouffant-wielding appearance from Larry David!
