Personal Velocity

posterSubtitled "Three Portraits", this film is actually three separate short stories, each portraying a woman in transition. Kyra Sedgwick plays Delia, a woman in an abusive marriage. Parker Posey plays Greta, an editor set to achieve her ambitions. Fairuza Balk is a directionless young woman who experiences a clarifying event. Each actress thrives with this meaty material giving performances that make these characters real and tragic and inspiring, each in their own way.

Verdict: 3 stars (out of 4)
