What other readers are saying about this title:
not to be confused with the gay film of the same title, this is soderberg’s Bubble; Martha and Kyle are co-worker’s at a doll making factory in a sleepy smalltown, middle america where nothing seems to be the norm, until Rose, a new employee inserts herself into the calm dynamic of which Martha has grown to enjoy with Kyle. Rose is everything Martha is not; young, pretty, opinionated, worldly and now she’s captured the attentions of Kyle, Martha’s only friend. Rose intices Martha to babysit for her one night, failing to mention that her date just happens to be with Kyle. It’s a night which no one will soon forget. Soderberg’s use of the unknown actors is well implemented here, there are stretches of awkward silences, improvised small talk and moments of tedium so achingly pronounced, you can’t help but be reminded of your own routine life. It’s real and it’s rawness at it’s best and worst, if you don’t recognise yourself in these people, you’re probably dead already.
