"... an important, often overlooked movie that is both a cautionary tale and a homage to friendship. I enjoyed the story and the "girlfriend dynamic" between the characters played by Claire Danes and Kate Beckinsale - something most women can relate to, I think. Oh, and if you watch this movie, you'll think twice before leaving your baggage unattended next time you're at the airport."
