Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The independently produced Home Remedy is virtually a textbook example of "Quirky." Seth Barrish plays a young New Jerseyite, displeased with the hustle-bustle of the world around him. He squirrels himself away in his huge suburban home, seeking only peace, quiet, and virtual non-movement. His solitude is shattered by his voluptuous next-door neighbor Maxine Albert, who seeks out sexual satisfaction with the passive Barrish. Alas, Albert has a violently jealous husband. A jet-black exercise in Woody Allenesque angst, Home Remedy is unrated, but hardly children's fare.
