Lindsay Mendez: "Give Me One Reason" (Tracy Chapman) No matter how many coffee shops I hear this in, I can't help but bounce to the funk of it and live in it a bit. Plus, Tracy is giving me that deep voice… Come on.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
