A comedic narrative feature about Una, a powerful music executive, who lives with her manservant Dick and her pet tiger cub Baby, in a feminist re-working of the melodramatic film.
"Dialogue is witty, presentation both rigorously direct and near surreal"
- Variety, Dennis Harvey
"Nix exploits all the motifs of contemporary LA culture but avoids any hint of naturalism: the movie is a theatrical, marvelously brittle exploration of style, and the conceit of studied knowingness"
- Time Out London, Frances Williams
"Laura Nix's debut delivers a swift kick in the face of queer cinema...This scrappy indie is an unexpectedly sharp examination of romantic vanities, collapsing co-dependency, and the iconography of new millennium lifestyle chic."
- Film Comment, Nathan Lee
