Anything Nancy Savoca makes is a gem. Her films are small miracles of character, story telling and
meaning. I caught this at the Toronto Film Festival where it was invited to open. As soon as I saw the name "Savoca" I was in line. She never disappoints. You never forget her movies. While you're watching the big budget efforts you might sit with your mouth open, goggling. But a day later it's lost in the litter of all the rest just like it. With a Savoca film, your heart and your mind engage and what you see and feel stays with you. I can still watch "Dog Fight" with River Phoenix and Lili Taylor in my head. The same goes for ""Household Saints" and "True Love." Savoca won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance for "True Love." She wins prizes for everything she makes. I fully expect she'll win again for "Union Square." And then there's the wonderful Mira Sorvino. Sorvino spins through this tale of two sisters like a whirling dervish. It's a tour de force of facade and revelation. Go Savoca!!
