Randy Blair: "I Can't Make You Love Me" (Bonnie Raitt). If you need to wallow in self pity, listen to Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" while eating an entire pint of Ben & Jerry's Peach Cobbler. It's their worst and least purchased flavor and the only thing more unloveable than you.
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.
