personal velocity

Personal Velocity presents three tiny perfect stories of three women, each with their own dilemma. Weaving together flashbacks and narration, each story takes its protagonist past confusion to the first glimpse of clarity. In “Delia” Kira Sedgwick plays an aging “class slut” who finds herself mid-30’s with three kids and an abusive husband. In “Greta,” our indie darling Parker Posey is a privileged Manhattanite, who rebels against her philandering father by underachieving and by marrying the antithesis of him. In “Paula” Fairuza Balk is a pregnant two-time runaway who understands her own doubts by picking up an uncommunicative hitchhiker. Our only wish for this film was that the director had trusted the strong performances of her leads and skipped some of the narration and flashbacks, but see it anyway — highly recommended.
