Overview

A young woman struggles to find herself despite the often oppressive influence of her family in this independent comedy drama. Sarabeth Cohen Marla Sokoloff has recently graduated from art school, and is determined to strike out on her own and establish herself as a painter. Her first bold step toward independence is moving away from home and getting a job in Manhattan, which doesn't do much to please her mother, Ruthie Tovah Feldshuh, or her father, Isaac Ronald Guttman, who don't make a secret of the fact they don't care for her artwork or her ambitions. Sarabeth's first steps toward her own life aren't very impressive -- short on money, she ends up moving in with her sister Raquel Idina Menzel and her sister's well-meaning but clueless husband, Howie Jayce Bartok, and discovers her bedroom is a walk-in closet. Sarabeth also finds she isn't cut out to be a waitress, which makes the constant comparisons to her other sister, Becky Liz Stauber, a hard-working medical student who is hiding her lesbianism from the family, all the more painful. And as Sarabeth struggles to find her place in the Big Apple, her boyfriend, Simon Rob McEhenney, begins moving away from his own creative ambitions toward an easier life as a businessmen. The Tollbooth was the first feature film from writer and director Debra Kirschner.
