This romantic comedy turns stereotypes inside out as the main character, whose sense of commitment is represented by a tattoo on her finger instead of a wedding ring, follows her estranged husband to El Paso. Her odyssey, audaciously devised by writer-director Lisa Krueger, combines a gently surreal reverence for Americana with a serious examination of cultural values. With Heather Graham, Casey Affleck, Patricia Velasquez, Goran Visnjic, Luke Wilson, and Alfonso Arau. 97 min. City North 14. --Lisa Alspector
