Tim Chappel, Costume Design: Samantha Morton and William Hurt in The Simian Line [2000]

Cast: Lynn Redgrave, William Hurt, Tyne Daly, Eric Stoltz, Cindy Crawford, Harry Conick Jr., Jamey Sheridan, Samantha Mathis, Monica Keena and Jeremy Bruno

“The Simian Line” is a beautifully crafted gem of a film. Produced and directed by Linda Yellen, this unscripted independent was shot—entirely on location in Brooklyn—in three weeks and, except for a basic story structure, was completely improvised.

If you ever have the opportunity to watch it—do! The performances from this all-star cast are fresh and alive, which is ironic as the two central characters are ghosts.
