George lives in a small hell-hole of a town, located in Montana.

George and his father Jack, get home and discover a man in their kitchen. George's mother has been having an affair with the stranger.
Soon after, an ugly scene takes place in the front yard, involving the stranger, Jack and his gun.
It ends with George's mother getting in the stranger's car and leaving for good.
The next day, George decides to help a Canadian woman named Lucy. She needs to get to Wyoming. Her brother is in jail, and she wants to get him out.
So George, his best friend Claude, and Lucy go on a road trip.
Things don't go well.
The first casualty of the trip, is Claude. He's kicked-out of the car after an ugly scene with Lucy.
George and Lucy leave.
Lucy finally gets a chance to speak to her brother.
Afterwards, she informs George of her plan. She's going to pay-off her brother's co-conspirators. She's hoping it will convince them to help her brother.
One of them, is a man called Bob. He's seems to be mentally unstable. The other two folks, are a couple named Art and Nina.
A deal is worked out, or so they think.

Jack: "Nobody dies of a broken heart"
Claude: "Being with you, is like being alone"
Lucy: "I love you boys, you're so wonderful"
Bob: "Doesn't the whole world work on trust?"

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
This is an extremely rare movie, and I love every minute of it.
I love the camera work.
Some parts of the movie feel like a sad, yet beautiful poem.
The scene of George having an epiphany is simple and memorable.
Everyone in front, and behind the camera, did an excellent job.
Lili Taylor is one of the best actesses in the United States, and that's a FACT.
This movie was released on VHS by HBO HOME ENTERTAINMENT.
First, the GREAT news... As of October 2011, BRIGHT ANGEL is finally available as a MOD-DVD by MGM.
Now, the BAD news... If you're considering buying one of MGM's MOD-DVDs, do your homework!... READ QUOTES BELOW!...
"Initially, MGM partnered with Amazon.com, but soon after the program's launch last spring, MGM and/or Amazon quietly pulled the plug. The reason? They were besieged with customer complaints of defective discs and rotten video transfers" - QUOTES ARE FROM THE DVD TALK WEBSITE - I have no idea if the problems have been solved.
