Worth watching

I watched this movie a few days ago, and I thought it was OK, but something happened. In the days that followed, it stayed with me. I actually found myself thinking about it at work, at home, at night. It was a great character study and a compelling drama of a woman who had lost herself, as often does, within a marriage. Doesn't matter whether the union is straight or gay, it often happens. After a couple years in a relationship, there is a tempering of passions and real life takes over; the house, the kids, car payments, jobs and everyday life is rather boring and what do you do when one partner decides there is no room in her life for passion? The performances were excellent, Robin Weigert was exceptionally good in the lead role of Abby and the writing was very good. I just wish Maggie Siff's character would have had a few more scenes. :) What I loved most is that even though this is a movie with "lesbians"...it's not really about lesbians...it's just about people and relationships and the primary character could have been straight, I don't think the movie would have been any different. I was impressed with the handling of homosexuality, finally in a movie, that didn't discuss it or analyze it...it just was.

Mind changing

Or life altering. I don't think you have to be lesbian to make a film about lesbians, but in this case it clearly did not hurt. But to reduce it only to that (positively/negatively) would not be fair to the movie and the story it tries to tell. The script is clever without trying. Of course some might only be intrigued or appalled as already mentioned by the lesbian theme. Hope you can see through that and concentrate on the movie and its themes. It's about love in general, about loss and life and many other things. Dialog is really good, the cast is amazing. It was one of the positive surprises at the Berlin International Festival. I can only recommend it

Came for the boobs stayed for a great story

After getting a knock to the head a bored lesbian house-wife becomes a suburban hooker in an attempt to give her life meaning. She has to work her new hobby around a somewhat standard life. I'm not going to lie, the only reason I put this on is because I fancied some girl-on-girl action. There is some, but this film is much more. The story is pretty straight forward but engaging and lean. The characters are absolutely fantastic and I was soon drawn into the lives of the central character, her loved ones and her clients. Most of the weight rests firmly on the shoulders of Robin Weigert, who makes this look very easy. She manages to portray a certain apathy with her life, that is strong enough for her to take action but never strays into depression. She is also physically well suited, she does look like a stereotypical suburban mother - but she is easy on the eye when it comes to the sex scenes. A great watch, there is some eroticism but mostly fantastic characters and simple but elegant story.
