Margarita Happy Hour

Young single mothers in Brooklyn meet in the afternoons to exchange notes on their lives in this 2001 independent feature written and directed by Ilya Chaiken. Much of the story revolves around the rocky relationship between a haggard porn illustrator (Eleanor Hutchins) and her boyfriend, a doped-up poet (Larry Fessenden, the Mickey Rourke of indie film) who may or may not have fathered her baby daughter. Flitting in and out of their lives (and apartment) are an assortment of pretentious artists and musicians, one of whom (Holly Ramos) generates an ambiguous love triangle with the boyfriend. Chaiken doesn't dwell on this aspect of the story; she seems far more interested in the boozy girl talk and the enervated slacker milieu, both of which are sharply and knowingly rendered. 98 min.
