The Sleepy Time Gal (2001) [American]

a.k.a: Backwards Looks, Far Corners (working title)

Jacqueline plays "Frances", who was once hosted a radio show called "The Sleepy Time Gal". The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival (January, 2001). It later played at other festivals, and a few theaters, but never a wide release. Sundance Channel has shown it, and it was released on video.

Both the film and Jacqueline have gotten some good reviews (see News); or here.

It was directed by Christopher Münch. The Peer Magazine website has a long interview with him; it includes a few photos.

This movie was shot under the title "Backwards Looks, Far Corners". I heard from some residents of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, that it was shooting there for awhile in 1999.

After playing Americans (implicitly) for many years, Jacqueline was forced to learn an American accent for this film. Frankly, I think it's a little too "arty"; the plot does not seem self-consistent. But an excellent performance by Jacqueline and the rest of the cast.
