Nevada ★★½ 1997 (R)

Women run a small Nevada town Monday through Friday while their men work at a dam several hours away, returning only on the weekends. When stranger Chrysty (Brenneman) shows up, the townswomen become curiously unsettled in their normally placid lives—accusing her of being a troublemaker or seeing her as a hopeful sign of change. 108m/C VHS . Amy Brenneman, Kirstie Alley, Gabrielle Anwar, Saffron Burrows, Angus MacFadyen, Kathy Najimy, Dee Wallace Stone, James Wilder, Bridgette Wilson-Sampras; D: Gary Tieche; W: Gary Tieche; C: Nancy Schreiber; M: Robert Perry.
