Whoopi once again plays one of her wise woman roles. Clea DuVall seems interesting. I don't remember watching her before (even though I've seen 21 Grams and Girl).
As for Winona Ryder, her movies went downhill after around 1994. (Btw, how many movies has she done where she's a writer or writes in a journal/diary? I don't know, but probably most of them.) Supposedly this movie was suppose to be her "comeback" but she got overshadowed by Jolie. She still hasn't had a comeback unless you count media attention from her "shopping spree." She makes a nice somewhat detached narrator, a part that is usually given to male actors. Hopefully, she'll do something worthwhile again.
