word of mouth

Ever since I saw Off the Map at last year's Seattle International Film Festival, I've been secretly worrying about how it probably wouldn't be released for people to see it outside of the festival circuit. Joan Allen, who's in the movie, was on Charlie Rose tonight and CR mentioned that the film was opening in select cities this weekend. This news made me intensely and irrationally happy.

Among other things Off the Map is about New Mexico, depression, and art. You'll probably read the plot summary and find it overcute -- IRS agent visits a family with a depressed father (& spunky daughter) who live off the grid to collect overdue taxes and becomes an artist -- but I hope you'll look at the long rollout schedule ( and see it when it comes to your town.

It really is a lovely little movie.
