Overview

Gypsy 83

What can help one woman overcome the fears, anxieties, and traumas of a lifetime? Perhaps the music of Stevie Nicks? Gypsy (Sara Rue) is a woman in her mid-twenties who is still emotionally stuck in adolescence; her job (at a drive-through photo processing center) is nothing to write home about, and her one consuming interest in life is the music of Fleetwood Mac diva Stevie Nicks. Gypsy has gone beyond collecting Stevie's records, and loves to dress up like her idol, belting out her songs in living tribute. One of Gypsy's only friends is Clive (Kett Turton), a goofy goth kid still in his teens who enjoys hanging out in cemeteries, where he and Gypsy can sing their Fleetwood Mac favorites for preservation on Clive's camcorder. One day, while browsing the Internet, Clive discovers a website advertising a "Night Of 1000 Stevies" at a New York City nightclub, in which any Stevie Nicks imitator is welcome to take the stage in tribute. Clive is convinced this is an event Gypsy cannot miss, but it leaves them with only four days to get their act together and travel from Sandusky, OH, to the Big Apple. In addition, Gypsy has her own issues to deal with in New York, the city her mother ran off to when she abandoned her family many years ago. Gypsy 83, Todd Stephens' first feature after his breakthrough success Edge of Seventeen, premiered at the 2001 L.A. Outfest, a festival devoted to gay- and lesbian-themed films.

This movie was just amazing. It makes you think about so many things that get lost in the flurry of everyday living. It's honesty is refreshing, and it's subject matter is unique and not on commonly found. In short, I hearted it and I think people will benefit if they watch it. It also got a killer soundtrack and the costumes are fantabulous.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen! It is a movie for EVERYONE!! The explaination above does a good job of telling you what it's about so let me talk about who's in it. The entire cast is wonderful, however Sara Rue and Kett Turton are PERFECT!! Both give such real and heart felt performances that you swear they both have lived these lives before. Throw in Karen Black and John Doe in smaller roles, of which they are just as perfect in, and you've got something that can't miss. Then to top it off you have Todd Stephens, a master of the 'John Hughes - in reality' type of film, steering this masterpiece into the realms of life altering art! Plus buy the soundtrack, with The Cure, Bauhaus, Claire Voyant, Diva Destruction and Sara Rue herself! She sings the most beautiful song that I have ever heard. Ranks right up there with the ballads of the best! Watch this movie and then share it with friends and family, none of you will be the same. Anyone who might think differently hasn't expierenced being different or a loss that changes your life. To them I say...
