Like Paddy Chayevsky's Marty Victor is a shy, inarticulate man with a devoted mother (Shelley Winters). Experiencing his first serious crush on a pretty young waitress (Liv Tyler) he can only fantasize about her. Filled with telling visual details this poignant, beautifully defined character study contains an extraordinary performance by Taylor Pruitt Vance who's so good you don't believe he's merely acting the role.
