A Slipping Down Life
- 111 min
Based on the novel by Anne Tyler, A Slipping Down Life is the story of the unusual courtship of an awkward young woman and a charismatic singer/songwriter, and the profound effect that their unlikely relationship has on each other’s lives.
Evie Decker (Lili Taylor) is a painfully timid young woman whose monotonous life consists of living with her reclusive widower father (Tom Bower) and working a dead-end job at a rundown amusement park. Evie’s quiet existence is forever altered when she hears a late-night radio interview with a struggling musician named Drumstrings Casey (Guy Pearce). Evie is fascinated with his seductive voice and sultry lyrics and convinces her best friend Violet (Sara Rue) to go with her to the local roadhouse to see him perform. Seeing him in person, Evie becomes even more mesmerized by the handsome and brooding musician.
During one of Drum’s shows, Evie’s growing infatuation blends into obsession when she becomes so entranced by his singing that she actually cuts his name into her forehead with a piece of glass. She considers this her first step towards taking more control of her life.
The incident brings her to Drum’s attention and he and his manager David Elliot (John Hawkes) decide to use her as a marketing gimmick at future shows. Evie’s total faith in Drum’s talent inspires and intrigues him while her role as his "muse" imparts Evie with uncharacteristic self-assurance.
A physical attraction between Evie and Drum develops as their emotional need for one another becomes more and more apparent. The inspiration they find together to break out from the confines of low expectations and hopelessness as well as the ordinariness of small town life becomes incompatible with the pursuit of their individual dreams. Together or apart they must decide which path will lead to the fulfillment of their newfound strength.
Another Road Home

Shortly after the Six-Day War in 1967, Danae Elon's highly educated parents, noted Israeli author Amos Elon, and former correspondent and literary agent Beth Elon, hired a Palestinian man named Musa, the father of eleven children, to take care of their six month old daughter on a daily basis. It was a job he would continue for the next twenty years until she was grown and he was able to save enough money to send all eight of his sons to America for education and career opportunities. The last time Danae saw Musa, in 1991, he proudly showed her the house he constructed in the Palestinian village of Battir. Then, against the mounting tensions of the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian Intifada, the two families lost track of each other. During that time Danae began to realize how much of an influence Musa had on her life and sought to reconnect with him. Her quest led her from her home in New York to Paterson, New Jersey, then to Battir in the occupied territories, and back to her birthplace in Jerusalem. As they carefully break the silence, the encounters between Danae and Musa's sons, and eventually Musa himself, bring to the surface an emotionally complex story that is ultimately heartwarming and optimistic.

A family of five, their two goats and donkey live in the middle of nowhere far from their village home. They earn meager living by producing & selling charcoal, made from the surrounding trees. The father and son are the only ones who ever return to their native village. The Mother & two daughters have not left this place since the day they abandoned home, 10 years ago. One day the father decides to provide running water for the family by illegally diverting water onto their land. The three women recoil from the idea but the teenage son obeys submissively anything to be allowed to continue attending school. The water surging through the pipe parallels the surging resentment the family feels towards the father. He brought them to this place against their will and they know the reason they left their home is also the reason they can never return, but the newly free-flowing water on their land re-awakens the instinctive desire for freedom they have been repressing all these years.
