Going Shopping

Indie film stalwart Henry Jaglom (Festival in Cannes, Babyfever, Eating, Someone to Love) returns with a further rumination of female obsessions. The film features dozens of documentary-like "confessions" from women discussing their love/hate relationship with shopping. Wrapped around these are a romantic drama centered on a Mother's Day sale at a pricey Los Angeles boutique. The shop's proprietress (longtime Jaglom collaborator Victoria Hoyt) is on the verge of bankruptcy thanks to her lousy accountant boyfriend, but she finds new romantic possibilities in a young man (Rob Morrow, from "Northern Exposure") shopping for his hard-to-please girlfriend. 106 minutes PG-13.
