young woman trying to make a success out of a life bred under disturbed circumstances. Heard
the story before? Moira Kelly plays the rebellious Soosh, an early twenties would-be artist,
who's father is a successful artist and who has lost her mother under suspicious circumstances. Her
relationships are all forced and her abrasive behavior is far too boorish. The big twist in Changing
Habits is Soosh attempts to save money and insure her independence by finding
lodging in a home for wayward women run by an order of nuns. Her run-ins with the nuns are supposed
to be hilarious, but they are forced at best. A romance that is sparked by her theft of art
supplies is awkwardly scripted. It's simply baffling why the young owner of the store would have
any interest in an obnoxious shoplifter. That's show biz I suppose.
This is a nice looking transfer from a company that hopefully is feeling its way toward better things in line of DVDs. There is very little grain and colors are bright. Contrast ratio is excellent and blacks are deep and pleasing. The image is sharp and there are no compression artifacts that I detected. Be careful on the sound levels. Start low and work your way up.
