Committed is a 2000 Miramax film directed and written by Lisa Krueger.

Plot[edit]

The ever-optimistic Joline (Heather Graham) faces a challenge when her husband, flaky news photographer Carl (Luke Wilson), leaves her to find himself in Texas. Joline tracks Carl down and observes him, acquainting herself with his schedule and new friends (including his new girlfriend, Carmen (Patricia Velásquez) and his quirky neighbor, Niko (Goran Visnjic). Eventually Carl spots Joline, and Joline seeks new ways of returning Carl to her life, up to and including mystic remedies provided by Carmen's grandfather. Eventually Joline is committed, hence the title, and her belief in true and lasting love is broken... or is it?

Reception[edit]

Committed was nominated for the Golden Reel Award for Best Sound Editing and also for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. It won the award for Best Cinematography at Sundance. The film had only a limited opening.
