A road movie without the road, a love story without the love, and a crime story without the crime. -- Kelly Reichardt
Kelly Reichardt’s debut is a riff on the American outlaw myth. In washed-out suburban Miami, Cozy (Lisa Bowman), a lonely mother of three, meets up with the shiftless Lee Ray Harold (Larry Fessenden) and sees an escape from her dreary existence. Mistaking their mutual aimlessness for excitement, the pair go on the lam. “Reichardt is so agile, ingenious, and funny that she can make a lively, entertaining movie about how life isn’t like the movies” (Los Angeles Times). Selected for the Berlin and Sundance film festivals, and nominated for a Sundance Grand Jury Prize. 1994, DCP, 76 minutes.
This restoration was made possible by Oscilloscope Laboratories, Sundance Institute, UCLA Film and Television Archive, TIFF, and hundreds of Kickstarter backers.
