In Cholodenko's award-winning debut, former Brat Packer Ally Sheedy delivers a charged, career-revitalizing performance as Lucy, a junkie and has-been professional photographer living in a heroin haze in New York. Downstairs neighbor Syd (Mitchell), a talented editor at a glossy art magazine, knocks on Lucy's door one day and finds herself enthralled by Lucy and her work. Syd is interested in offering Lucy a second chance at an artistic career, but their relationship turns into a game of seduction. A powerful look at sex, ambition and addiction.
