Statuesque and charismatic Nola Darling is trying to figure out what she wants in life. She has a good job as a commercial artist and designer, a spacious Brooklyn apartment, and three boyfriends: genteel professional Jamie Overstreet, vain male model Greer Childs, and livewire bike messenger Mars Blackmon. Each of them is far from Nola's ideal man, but each fulfills a different need for her. Between her juggling act--accompanied by total honesty about who and what she's doing--and the childish squabbling of the three men, Lee makes some rather nebulous points about gender relations and the double standard. Primarily, this film announces the arrival of a seriously good filmmaker in the American cinematic firmament
