The Room

Selected from Cheating at Canasta (2007)

A dingy room above a betting shop, two consenting adults, two struggling marriages.  Two relative strangers take what they need from the afternoons as they attempt to piece together their respective lives. Subtle writing but it certainly won’t make your heart strings go zing.
