What do we think about this movie, all these years after it was made? I loved the book, but I never understood how it would work as a movie. It was a collection of short stories, the only common thread between them was Eleanor and her amusing downtown life, her low self esteem, and her asshole boyfriend. What was the movie actually about? The downtown art world? Eleanor eventually finding her place in it? Although I initially thought she was miscast, Bernadette Peters is actually quite good in the role. She has that weird, not-quite-pretty, not-quite-cool quirkiness that was right for the character.
