Editors Note
Note New York native Chris Terrio's debut feature film, HEIGHTS, is a whirlwind of outstanding acting, excellent locations, and a unique plot filled with twists and turns. Based on Amy Fox's play, the film is set in the theater community of New York City, as diva Diana Lee (Glenn Close) prepares to portray Lady Macbeth on Broadway. She wants to cast Alec (Jesse Bradford) in a play she's directing, but a secret is preventing him from jumping at the chance to graduate from off-off-Broadway fringe roles. Meanwhile, Lee's daughter, Isabel (Elizabeth Banks), is getting ready to marry Jonathan (James Marsden), a young executive with a secret of his own. And Lee is unhappy that her husband (Phil Tabor) has chosen her understudy (Susan Malick) for his latest dalliance. All comes to a head as Peter (John Light), who has been hired by Vanity Fair to look into a famous photographer's sexual past, uncovers some surprising revelations. This gem of a film, taking place over just one day, features fine support by an eclectic group of stars, including Denis O'Hare, George Segal, Eric Bogosian, Isabella Rossellini, Rufus Wainwright, and Michael Murphy. But it is the radiant Close and the mesmerizing Banks who are the heart of Terrio's poignant, powerful drama.

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review That the threads of all of these lives intersect in about 24 hours is the movie's reality. That they are interesting is the movie's success. There is a sense in which this movie could simply play as a puzzle, but the acting is good enough to carry the contrivance.
