(DVD - 2004)
Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
The story of an interracial romance and the obstacles it puts on family relationships. When appearing on Jean Shepherd's radio program Night People, Cassevetes mentioned the improvisation work he had done with his acting class, and asked for funding to film it. When listeners actually sent in money, he worked up a script based on the classwork, and with additional funding filmed his story of three siblings, two of whom can pass as white.

It's a wonderful film that captures the feeling of bohemian New York circa 1960. The colour line is crossed, sometimes successfully, sometimes not.

It was a very good film that really hits the fault line with many issues.
