Synopsis: In New York City, Susan Weinblatt and Anne Munroe are longtime roommates and friends. Susan is a struggling photographer who wants to get out of the wedding and bar mitzvah racket, those jobs which she primarily gets through her friend, Rabbi Gold, to selling the photographs she wants to take, but she realizes that she has to pay the rent. Anne is an aspiring poet and academic who looks to Susan as her primary guidance. As they move into a new apartment, Anne drops the news that she will not be moving in as she is getting married to her boyfriend, Martin. This news is bittersweet for Susan who is somewhat happy for her friend, but isn't sure if she likes all that Martin now represents to her. Both Susan and Anne will have to make professional and personal adjustments to their new situations, especially in what it means for not having the other as a constant in each their lives. While Anne has a "Martin", Susan has no one currently to replace all that Anne has been in her life. So Susan

What are you doing?

Go back to sleep.

What are you doing?

It's still dark in here.

No, it's not.

This light is fantastic.

I'm awake.

You can't take pictures of me

asleep if I'm awake, right?

Did you dream again?


Did you have a bad dream?

Hey, suze...

Could you listen to something

for a minute?


I'm not sure I really like it.

Anne, I'm going to work

in five minutes.

I know, but it's important.


OK, go ahead.

"I have a war with my mother.

"She's on her side.

"It has become clear

that I'm on mine.

"I am pale beside her.

"Her hair is black,

mine blonde.

"Her skin is red,

mine off-white.

"She looks like a gypsy,

and she has a secret sword.

"This war could be

the longest war in history,

"maybe longer than

100 hundred years.

"With that in mind,

I am polite.

"I do not fight this war.

"My strategy is disengagement.

I will colonize Venus. "

Did you ever fight with your mother?


Did your parents ever argue?


Were you surprised

when they got divorced?

Not really. They never talked

to each other either.

You don't like it.

What don't you like about it?

I don't know...

Something. I don't know.

I like what you did

with the last one better.

Anne, I got to go.

I'm going to be late.


Listen, we'll talk

about it later, all right?

OK. Goodbye.

I mean it. We will.


Could we have

the prayer book, please?


Rabbi, why don't you try

shaking hands?

Why don't you smile, Jeffrey?


Jeffrey, what's green

and flies over Poland?

Peter Panski.

OK, great.

Thank you so much, rabbi.

My pleasure, Mrs. Hinkleman.

Thank the rabbi, Jeffrey.

Thank you.

You did very well, Jeffrey.

We've got a wedding we've got to

go to next week on Long Island.


I can't wait.

What's a wrench?


What's a wrench?

A wrench?

I don't know.

It's a place where Jewish cowboys go.



We'll paint the walls green.

No, red.


Oh, yeah.

It'll be fabulous. Trust me.


You sure?

Oh, yeah. It'll be great.

Oh, boy,

we can get a hammock.

I could use this as my darkroom.

Or it could be another bedroom.

Do you think

we should have an opening?

We can invite Herbie Hancock.

You think he'll come?

Oh, Suze, I really want you

to meet Martin.

Oh, he can come.

We'll invite him, too.

Susan, I really like him.

I think I almost might love him.

Wait a minute.

You think... You almost...

Might... love him?

I love him.

That's fantastic!

That's fantastic!


Would you please not read

over my shoulder?

You started something.

That frigging idiot!

I'll take his frigging thesis

and throw it down the toilet!

Annie, what happened?

Tell me. Come on!

He can take his goddamn family

and live with them for the rest

of his life, that animal.

OK., so tell me.

What's so blind about him?


for one thing,

he thinks I'm a dilettante.

Well, maybe he's not so blind.

I can see you really

take me seriously.

I take you more seriously

than you take yourself.

How can I love him?

Maybe I don't love him.

How can you love someone

that doesn't even know you?

Maybe I just like him a lot.

Maybe that's enough.

It doesn't sound like much to me.


Anyway what?

You can take care of yourself.

I don't want to take care of myself.

I want Martin to take care of me.

For Christ's sake, Anne,

you don't need anyone

to take care of you.

Don't you know that?

I don't?

No, you don't.

I don't.

Anne, you won't believe it.

You're going to be famous,

and I'm going to be famous.

Tell me.

What happened?

I dit it.

They're taking three of my pictures.
