State of the Union

Nurse Betty explores our national ennui and insanity through the fantasies of its lead characters

Ultimately the ending of Nurse Betty is absurd, but because happiness is revealed along the way to be a very complex arrangement, it avoids being pat. One feels the hope in the trenches when Rosa consoles Betty, "I just want you to get your fairy-tale ending. At least one of us should." The movie is brave enough to allow its intrepid heroine to jettison our national cynicism and pessimism somewhere along Route 66. That, in itself, makes it a story worth remembering.
