Set in a working class town in West Virginia, Bubble revolves around Kyle and Martha, two stiffs working in a doll factory whose lives are as glum as their bank accounts. The action picks up when a single mother named Rose starts work at the factory. Noticing Kyles obvious interest in their attractive new coworker, Martha considerably older (and heavier) than Rose takes an immediate disliking to her. But the extent of Marthas feelings, or those any other character, are hard to gauge because of films minimal dialogue. So when a murder is committed, its a guessing game to the very end. (Heres a hint: It wasnt Chucky.)
Bubble opens Wednesday and runs through February 19 at Cinema Paradiso (1314 East Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Call 954-760-9898, or visit www.cinemaparadiso.org.
