Genre: Drama

Plot: Starring Lili Taylor and Courtney Love, this story of self-discovery, courage, and love presents a New Jersey housewife who is dissatisfied with her everyday life and is much smarter than she or anyone else knows.

While taking a night school computer class, Julie begins to discover her abilities and finds the courage to make dramatic life changes. Claire, Julie's best friend, goes along with Julie's secret quest and eventually moves in with her. Both women are on a search to realize their dreams and come to terms with their friendship for each other. Based on a play of the same name by Wendy Hammond. The director, Bob Gosse, also produced critically acclaimed Niagara, Niagara and The Last Home Run. Great soundtrack with four cuts by Liz Phair!

 External Reviews
external linkWhile the film does have some decent character development, it never seems to grab on to any theme with anything more than a pinch. Maybe the lesson, if there is one, is that tiny things can change everything but the film is so mundane in its scenarios that all credibility is lost almost immediately. 1.5/5

external linkThe film has a melancholy feel about it, ending on a note that is not entirely positive but that has some hope to it. Not quirky enough to be a big crowd-pleaser, and not insightful enough to be very moving, "Julie Johnson" nonetheless wins points for earnestness. B-
