Plot Summary
Nell Tiscowitz (Miranda Otto) is an aspiring actress who moonlights as a waitress in a strip club.

She then meets the dashing Digby Olsen (Martin Kemp), a rich guy involved in the music industry who can't seem to manage the horses at a stable he purchased. He hires Nell, who easily tames the animals as she begins to fall for Digby. But opening up to a man isn't a simple task for her.

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Eisenstadt has an unerring sense of comedic rhythm and a knack of cutting away just in time to extract the drop of humor from a potentially pathetic situation. show more
