Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Beals and Seymour Cassel star in this 1992 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner. Aldolpho Rollo, a struggling screenwriter-filmmaker longing for international success, lives in a run-down building where he can barely make his rent. When his landlords menace him with foreboding promises to do him bodily harm, they frighten the jejune artist into taking charge of his financial situation. With no monetary recourse, Aldolpho has to stop nursing his 500-page screeplay and actually try selling it. Much to his surprise, Joe, a seemingly wealthy eccentric older gentleman, offers Aldolpho $1,000 cash for the work.
