Some directors are worth taking a chance on. Michael Steinberg is one of them. For his first feature he convinced an all box-office cast to take a chance on a low-budget movie with a good script. For the disc, Eric Stoltz and screenwriter Roger Hedden joined him in telling the intimate story of a classic independent production, from their earliest struggles to their triumph at the Sundance Film Festival.

This character study of twenty-something romance and ennui, set in the American Southwest, stars Phoebe Cates, Bridget Fonda, Tim Roth, and Eric Stoltz. Bodies, Rest & Motion charts one weekend in the interwoven lives of two men and two women trying to reconcile dreams of love and contentment with realities of false starts and missed opportunities.

Criterion's special edition includes:

  • Audio commentary by director Michael Steinberg
  • Interviews with the cast and crew
  • Production documentation, including a "making-of" featurette
  • The original theatrical trailer
