In this romantic psychodrama, smitten couple Agatha and filmmaker Jo are made distant after Agatha reads Jo’s diary, suggesting a decidedly heterosexual past. During Jo’s intense film shoot, Agatha begins surreptitiously seeing (or hallucinating?) her partner out and about enjoying the company of men. With a score by downtown New York mainstay John Zorn, this is a film given considerable warmth by the minutiae of its depiction of New York City as a city of tradeoffs—where work is everything, nobody has enough time, and everyone is wondering if they can do better.
