  • Jacqueline Bisset gives a glorious performance in Christopher Mnch's third film, THE SLEEPY TIME GAL. She stars as Frances, a twice-divorced former radio deejay trying to pass on her knowledge, including her fascination with Revolutionary War-era New York, to her 20-year-old son, Morgan (Nick Stahl), but he's too concerned with photography and being Goth to listen to her; he'd much rather take a picture of strangers in the street than of a historical landmark. But when Frances contracts cancer, she starts looking back on her life, trying to reconnect with her sons (her other boy lives overseas) while also visiting a past love (Seymour Cassel) with whom she had a child they gave up for adoption many years before. At the same time, Rebecca (Martha Plimpton), a successful lawyer working on a corporate takeover of a small Florida radio station, goes on a search to find out more about her birth mother while growing very close with the station's program director (Frankie R. Faison), who used to work with the Sleepy Time Gal.

    Writing and directing (and producing and editing) his first color feature, Mnch once again displays his firm grasp of cinematic language and his keen ability to write offbeat, poignant dialogue. He garners wonderful performances from his talented cast as the story moves from New York City to San Francisco, from Pennsylvania Dutch country to Daytona Beach. And at the center of it all is the stunningly beautiful Bisset, who is unforgettable in a difficult, tragic role unlike anything she's played before.
