There Are 10 Million People In New York City, But Only One Like Bella.
In this contemporary New York comedy starring Anna Thomson (Unforgiven, Fiona) and Louise Lasser (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, Happiness), the romantic twists and turns of the patrons of a Manhattan coffee shop are strung together into a funny yet intimate and warmhearted tale.
On her 35th birthday, Bella (Thomson), an over-worked waitress, is set-up on a date with Bruno, an irresponsible cab driver and father of two. As Bella and Bruno begin their courtship, one of her regular customers Paul -a long-time widow- responds to an ad and meets Emily (Lasser). After a few promising dates, Paul questions whether he still has the passion to make a new relationship work. As Paul comes to terms with this reluctance to be with Emily, Bella finds herself at a similar place with Bruno. Guardedly, the two couples continue amidst the swirling issues of love, sex, age and commitment. Soon however, a random encounter changes Bella's life in a way she could never have imagined.
Both warm and tender as well as witty and sexy, Fast Food Fast Women is a refreshingly enjoyable ride through the irreverent lives of people looking for love.
