Dir. Kelly Reichardt . 1994, 100 mins. 16mm print. With Lisa Bowman, Larry Fessenden. A 30-year-old woman takes off with a drifter, leaving her children and husband behind, and the pair becomes a hapless would-be Bonnie and Clyde, stumbling through the sterile South Florida landscape. Reichardt’s debut feature announced her laconic, observational style. Critic Jonathan Rosenbaum called it “a canny, contemporary portrait of shiftlessness.”
