Man on a hot tin rail
A road movie. The film revolves around the trip that a young couple make to Canada, just to try and buy a particular doll. Problem is, he is not terribly bright, and she is severely mentally ill - Tourette's Syndrome et al. However, they are both lonely and misunderstood, and find peace and acceptance with each other. When her medication runs out, their problems start, and things get increasingly violent and uncontrolled as they rush towards the inevitable conclusion. Just like the Niagara Falls, I guess, where the film ends. The film is well made, with good acting, but I found the storyline a little thin.
