Synopsis by Mark Deming
A woman wonders about taking the plunge into a new relationship as those around her are giving her a solid push in this romantic comedy-drama. Marilyn Ross (Marie-Françoise Theodore) is an artist who isn't looking for a new relationship right away after a bad breakup with her two-timing boyfriend. Marilyn begins entertaining the notion of moving away from Chicago, where she lives to keep an eye on her elderly mother (Mimi Ayers), when she meets Rodney (Christian Payton), a reporter who has just gone through a messy divorce. Marilyn and Rodney quickly hit it off, but while her friends, her mother, and even Rodney begin dropping thudding hints that she ought to consider marriage with him, Marilyn is the only one who isn't convinced that's a good idea. Strange as Angels was screened at the 2004 San Francisco Black Film Festival.
