DIRECTOR: HAL HARTLEY

CAST: ISABELLE HUPPERT, MARTIN DONOVAN, ELINA LöWENSOHN

Set in a disappeared downtown Manhattan of twenty years ago, this absurdist comedy from peak period Hartley introduces Huppert as an ex-nun trying to make ends meet by writing smut for the likes of Wet & Wild magazine, scooped up in a coffee shop by a bloodied but hunky hustler (Martin Donovan) who recruits her into his mission to recover his past—a journey that will lead them into a noirish underworld of yuppified gangsters.
