FULL SYNOPSIS

The lives of five L.A. natives intertwine in this romantic comedy from independent filmmaker and former [[Performer~P79456~Robert Altman~robertaltman]] protégé [[Performer~P109237~Alan Rudolph~alanrudolph]]. Eve ([[Performer~P74788~Lesley Ann Warren~lesleyannwarren]]) is a bar owner who has sworn off permanent commitments, seeking only the temporary sexual satisfaction of men. Her roommate Ann ([[Performer~P9433~Genevieve Bujold~genevièvebujold]]) is her polar opposite. In reality, Ann is secretly the radio sex therapist Dr. Nancy Love, but she has little romantic experience despite her profession. Into their lives comes Mickey ([[Performer~P84256~Keith Carradine~keithcarradine]]), a recent mental patient who might be an enigmatic pathological liar. Though she's powerfully attracted to Mickey, Eve's kept at arm's length by her lover Zack ([[Performer~P4592~Patrick Bauchau~patrickbauchau]]), a married man whose wife ([[Performer~P12943~Rae Dawn Chong~raedawnchong]]) also finds Mickey irresistible. When Nancy sleeps with Mickey, he proposes marriage, but she rejects him, though the assignation does have a positive effect on her radio show. Considered [[Performer~P109237~Rudolph~alanrudolph]]'s seminal work, Choose Me (1984) was the third in a thematically-linked trilogy from the quirky low-budget director, the first two being [[Feature~V53802~Welcome to L.A.~welcometola]] (1977) and [[Feature~V107572~Remember My Name~remembermyname]] (1978). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
