Product Description

Amazon.ca

Cherish starts out with a promising idea: An erratic young woman named Zoe (Robin Tunney, The Craft, Niagara, Niagara) under house arrest with a bracelet around her ankle that sets off an alarm if she tries to leave her apartment, begins an unlikely romance with Bill (Tim Blake Nelson, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Good Girl), the lonely guy who monitors the bracelet. Unfortunately, about halfway through the movie mutates into a poorly thought-out thriller, in which Zoe tries to trap the stalker who got her arrested in the first place. Tunney and Nelson are both engaging, inventive actors; if the movie had trusted their charm, instead of trying to concoct implausible plot twists, this could have been delightful. Also featuring Jason Priestley, Nora Dunn, and indie rock star Liz Phair. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars If I could, I'd give Robin Tunney 10 STARS! July 18 2004
Format:DVD
"Cherish" is a very entertaining movie about a lonely woman named Zoe (Robin Tunney) who, as a result of being carjacked by a stalker and framed for a crime, is placed under house arrest and forced to wear an ankle bracelet so that the police can monitor her whereabouts. The movie then becomes a brilliant character study as we watch Zoe try to cope with her isolation and eventually develop independence, all while trying to prove her innocence to Bill (Tim Blake Nelson), the deputy in charge of visiting her regularly to examine the ankle bracelet. This good dark comedy is made into a great one thanks to the incredibly powerful performances given by the actors, ESPECIALLY ROBIN TUNNEY!
I can't lavish enough praise on Robin Tunney for her brilliant portrayal as Zoe. I never really had an opinion on Ms. Tunney before "Cherish", as I usually saw her in forgettable movies like "Vertical Limit" and "The Craft", but she blew me away in this one. Robin nails all the necessary emotions. In one scene, I actually had to fight back tears as Robin's Zoe begs a delivery-man to stay with her because her isolation has left her so starved for company. In another scene, Robin's Zoe had me laughing hysterically as she tormented the tightly-wound Bill by roller-skating around her apartment while he tries to examine the bracelet. There are many other wonderful moments as well...the kind-hearted Zoe befriending the crippled man who lives below her...the once-weak Zoe becoming fiercely independent...it's impossible to not fall in love with Zoe. Robin Tunney grabs your attention as soon as she hits the screen and doesn't let go until the ending credits. Plus, there is the incredible chemistry between Robin's Zoe and Tim's Bill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cherish DVD Nov. 2 2003
Format:DVD
"Cherish" is the kind of movie that needs no introduction. At first glance, I was led to believe that this independent film was doomed to fail. When I looked again, I saw Robin Tunney playing another offbeat character to perfection. Her billiance has stretched from 1997's noteworthy indie classic "Niagara, Niagara" and places her on the catapult of underrated actresses that deserve more then thier fair share. Tunney plays computer animator Zoe Adler who one day finds herself under house arrest over a crime she didn't commit. Tunney is helped by Tim Blake Nelson of "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" fame. Thier performances are effulgent together with strength that gets provoking from each scene. "Cherish" does have its flaws and never seems to distinguish facts that seem implausible. This film seems more apparent leaving you to guess what is not being said then to write it into your head. It's often charming, sometimes distubing but it always gives us the reflection of loneliness that is self taught through experiences of revelation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Totally tubular tunes & twisted romance Sept. 25 2003
By Nieuki
Format:DVD
CHERISH is a twisted love story between a woman under house arrest, Zoë (Robin Tunney), and Bill (Tim Blake Nelson), the man who attaches her ankle-bracelet monitor. It is also a thriller -- Zoë has not committed the crime she's under arrest for and she is anxious to find the guilty party, who also happens to be her stalker. This film is a little confusing, not entirely successful, but has some noteworthy elements.
It's another great performance from Nelson, a top-notch character actor. Bill, all business in his short-sleeved dress shirts and striped ties, hardly knows what to make of Zoë, as she skates around her kitchen/roller rink, blasting tunes from the local 80's station (great soundtrack). Zoë is difficult and flirtatious, which is equally confounding and alluring for Bill. In one of my favorite Bill moments, he methodically ages a brand-new boom box for Zoë, which he 'nonchalantly' presents claiming it was an old one he had around the house.
Robin Tunney can't quite make up her mind as to Zoë's character, but it's an admirable attempt. The story first presents Zoë as the frizzy-haired neurotic outcast of her office, excluded from a coworker's hot party, falling into bed with various men who never call, with no real sense of herself. Following the trauma of her arrest she retreats into a comfortably delusional mode: dressing up in various costumes and singing into her hairdryer in the mirror. Eventually fed up with the legal process she is inspired to take a more proactive approach to her time, trying to work around the confines of her geographical limitations, first to have more physical freedom and in the process, to find her stalker.
The supporting cast is a hoot, including indie-rock goddess Liz Phair and not one, but two, Beverly Hills 90210 cast members.

I loved this movie. The plot is summarized well in the other reviews, but I'll give a quick rundown: a socially awkward, lonely computer animator named Zoe (Robin Tunney), who tries to fill up her alone time by dating men who never call her back, crashes a party of co-workers at a local bar, has too much to drink, gets carjacked by a guy who's been stalking her, runs into and kills a police officer, and ends up under house arrest awaiting her trial, confined to her apartment by an electronic ankle bracelet.
It's Zoe's worst fear: being confined with only herself as company. But once alone in her apartment, she transforms from a tentative, clingy woman who looks outside herself for approval into a charming, independent woman who finds her strength within. In the process, she forms a bond with her disabled downstairs neighbor and develops a romance with deputy Bill (perfectly played by Tim Blake Nelson), who comes to tend her ankle bracelet.
This romance is the best thing about the movie. In the DVD commentary, the director (Finn Taylor) says the script originally didn't focus as much on the romance, but the chemistry between Tunney and Nelson was so good that he changed the movie to focus more on them. Many reviewers felt that the movie should have focused *completely* on that relationship, and on Zoe's inner development, instead of shifting gears into a thriller in the last 20 minutes, when Zoe runs around San Francisco trying to prove her innocence.
This movie was also attacked by several reviewers for being "unrealistic," but let's face it, what movie *is* realistic? To me, the success of a movie rests not on its ability to be "true-to-life," but on whether it creates a cohesive, engaging world and draws you into it, and this movie does that.
