      Movie Info

      Although Mary (Parker Posey) has little income, she still finds ways to spend her nights at clubs. After being arrested for throwing an illegal rave, she asks her aunt Judy (Sasha von Scherler) for bail money. Judy then finds Mary a job at her library so that Mary can repay her. Initially, Mary finds the job as a clerk boring and stifling, and prefers to get to know a street food vendor (Omar Townsend) whom she likes. However, Mary must refocus her life once she loses her job and apartment.

      • Jan 16, 2013

        A quirky, inventive comedy, that comes off as sincere and lovable, as the lead character. Parker Posey ruled the indie films of the nineties, starring in 32 indie films throughout the decade and gaining the nickname "Queen of the Indies." She earns that moniker as the misadjusted misanthropic Gen X party girl Mary. The film starts with a party scene in a New York loft, occupied by all manner of outcasts, including drag queens, bare chested men and glitter covered twentysomethings. The film itself is a look at that generation, at being lost, without a job or a purpose when the world is waiting with an outstretched hand. Mary is a party girl, but not a dolt headed nymphet. She makes money in the beginning of the film running a business, a business based on gluttony and freedom, partying away the shame and indulgences of youth. The film distances itself from that lifestyle, and shows that you can love the world of parties and clubs while reaching a goal for the rest of your life. Mary is neither empty headed nor inherently unambitious, and as she interacts with the different people of her life, (everyone from the New York City public librarians, friends, club promoters, and a food truck vendor) we realize she is multi-faceted. The film reeks of indie in the best possible way. The music is nineties' club music the entire way through, the film itself has nice long shots, no quick cuts, and manages to bring each relationship into focus. This film cemented Parker Posey as the "it girl" of the era and led to a short lived sitcom on Fox. Mary is a candid and earnest character, and simply watching her shift between intense intellectual prowess and party girl proves to be the main interest of the film. Simply one of the best indies of the decade, with one of the best actresses in the lead role.

        I didn't care for this movie, maybe because I'm not a party girl myself? Now that I think of it, this movie is the 90s version of Breakfast at Tiffany's. The story is boring for the most part, and entirely predictable. I did not like it.

        A bit disapointing overall, but not HORRIBLE. I always have exceedingly high expectations for Ms. Posey and she seldom disappoints. Enjoyable, but not as good as it could have (should have?) been.

        Wacky comedy with plenty of humor. I love Parker Posey and her zany antics in this movie. Music is great also with an cool soundtrack.
