About the Movie
Afternoon Delight follows Rachel (Kathryn Hahn - Step Brothers, We're the Millers), a quick-witted yet tightly coiled thirty-something bored with her daily routine of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and a career that has gone kaput. Looking to spice up her marriage, Rachel takes her husband, Jeff (Josh Radnor, How I Met Your Mother, Liberal Arts), to a strip club and meets McKenna (Juno Temple - Killer Joe, The Dark Knight Rises), a stripper she becomes obsessed with saving. Rachel adopts McKenna as her live-in nanny, wreaking havoc on her friends, family and herself.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Whether or not you wince, this meticulously acted movie, which won Ms. Soloway a directing award at the Sundance Film Festival, paints an accurate picture of how a segment of youngish, educated, affluent, white Americans converse.
Fresh: As the sweetly amoral tattooed-goddess-for-hire, Temple does her wiliest acting yet.
Fresh: It's an up-and-down movie, honest one minute and a fraud the next, but you stick with it mainly because of Hahn.
Rotten: There are some bright one-liners in the beginning, but the comedy/drama mix is an uneasy one, especially considering the shabby way the film treats McKenna, as a tart who's just there to improve some yuppie sex lives.
Funny, sad, dark, sexy, real
Hahn is amazing, Juno Temple heartbreaking. Such a unique and surprising movie-- a potent mix of painful truths and shockingly funny moments.
You'll laugh, but more than that you will FEEL.
You would think that taking a stripper home that there would be some action. Nope, a lot of whining about how bad the marriage is and how she is going to help this stripper get out of the fast life. Not worth the time to watch.
Kathryn Hahn is perfect
The title says it all. Sh*t is REAL.
