Release Date: 2001-01-19 (Sundance '01)
Duration: 1hr 35min
In the late afternoon hours of half-priced drink specials, Zelda and her circle of disreputable mothers discuss Medicaid and abortions, curse their own mothers, and struggle to find the support in each other that is lacking from their men. Confined to the bedroom she shares with her boyfriend, who aspires to be a starving poet, Zelda coos her baby to sleep while the Brooklyn loft she shares with a group of would-be artists vibrates to the beat of the newest, loudest music. With her best friend in recovery from a drug-infested "scenester" lifestyle, the unwed mother becomes the lone beacon of responsibility and maternal instinct in the household. But as the end of happy hour approaches, Zelda must decide whether to stick with the father of her child or break away from the seductive and crazy lifestyle.
