(Kelly Reichardt, USA 1994)
Violence, offensive language, nudity.

Reichardt’s debut feature is a quick-witted film whose appeal is as much a matter of tone and style as a story.

When thirty-year-old Cory comes to the realization that her life isn’t all it might be - her lackadaisical husband, three kids, and house on a soggy acre in Broward County, Florida, leave something to be desired - she sneaks out one night to a local bar and meets her destiny, an aimless and enigmatic young drifter named Lee. While engaging in a little late-night pool-hopping, the pair encounters an annoyed homeowner.

Unfortunately for all concerned, Lee has chosen this moment to show Cory his pistol. The gun goes off and the couple flees. So begins a low-key but captivating escapade that provokes amusement and incredulity as this bungling Bonnie and Clyde live the life of outlaws who can’t seem to get it right. Shot on a minuscule budget, with a stark atmosphere, this is original, controlled filmmaking by creative independents who clearly understand the B-movie legacy they’re tapping into. - Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival

The film follows the 71st AGM of the Wellington Film Society.
