It's a sign of how wonderful Geena Davis is here—and how adept director Martha Coolidge continues to be in tackling women's subjects—that this movie manages to score much of the time in spite of a feeble script by Todd Graff (Used People), based on Avra Wing's novel Angie, I Says. Davis plays a hard-nosed single woman from Brooklyn's Bensonhurst who becomes pregnant and decides to have the baby; plagued by never having known her own mother, she makes a journey into her family's past. Among the secondary cast, Aida Turturro (cousin of John) and Jenny O'Hara, as the heroine's best friend and stepmother, are especially good; James Gandolfini and Stephen Rea, who play respectively her longtime boyfriend and her lover, are relatively predictable; with Philip Bosco.
