Abandoned by her husband, single mom Nora (Brooke Adams) waitresses in a tiny New Mexico town, struggling to raise her teen daughtersmovie-matinee dreamer Shade (Independent Spirit Awardwinning Fairuza Balk) and cheekily guy-focused Trudi (Ione Skye)while trying to find a little romance herself. Writer-director Allison Anders, very loosely adapting Richard Peck's YA novel Don't Look and It Won't Hurt, offers an amusingly affecting look at a nontraditional family living on the margins. Spiffed up in HD, this new edition also boasts making-of reflections.
