Shy loner Evie (Taylor) hears musician Drumstrings Casey (Pearce) on the radio one night and becomes infatuated with him. She pursues him, carving his name (sadly, backwards) in her forehead with broken glass, and eventually they meet and then marry. They both still struggle to make something of their lives.
A Slipping-Down Life premiered on January 22, 1999, at the Sundance Film Festival, distributed by Lions Gate Entertainment. It was given limited theatrical release in the United States on May 14, 2004.
The film was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 1999 Sundance Festival. In 2004 it won the Special Jury Prize at the Indianapolis International Film Festival and Lili Taylor won the Achievement Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival. In that year it was also nominated for a Golden Trailer Award.
