  • Working from a script by the gifted Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement), who seems to have traded his wit for a paycheck, Fontaine manages the trick of making sex joyless.

    This movie had so many twists and turns. Tastefully and thoughtfully put together. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Nice theater too!

    I liked this movie. Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are still smoking hot, and the young men are too!!
