I saw some tv spots during the two or three weeks it played around here (Detroit). No one I knew got around to seeing it and it sort of slipped by. Thanks for the recommendation.

However, with small movies like this at the time of the year it was released (December--> Oscar bait) it's very typical to start with a small release and build word-of-mouth. So you really can't blame it on the limited release either. I honestly think Magnolia's marketing department did exactly what they should have done in this case.

No advertising and it was never shown in this area, not even in Orlando which is a fairly large city.

I don't think the title doomed it at all.  The lack of any type of advertising doomed it.  Also, it didn't help that it was a very limited release.

I agree.  I was able to get this through the local library system (so it was free to watch) and wasn't expecting too much from it, but it really draws you in.  I'd pick it up if I could get it for cheap.

Yeah, it's a good film. Picked it up cheap a few months ago
