This slight, modestly entertaining movie owes everything to the talents of its actors, starting with the redoubtable Toni Collette. Ellie Klug (Collette) is a mess — a music critic for a Seattle rock magazine whose career, drinking, and love life are all on downward spirals. Ordered by her editor (Oliver Platt) to do a 10-year anniversary piece on the presumed suicide of a rock icon who was her former lover, she teams up with Charlie (Thomas Haden Church), a humorless,wealthy, would-be documentarian, to track down leads. The investigative story loses its drive in coy subplots and characters, including an archly caricatured animal-rights activist. Rated R. 97 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe.
