About the Movie
Several women - independent, strong-willed, beautiful - fight for their lives in a city of shifting influences. Each struggles to overcome her personal conflicts, against the backdrop of greater political struggles. Women's personal lives and struggles collide with world events in ALLURE. Liliana reluctantly descends into the world of escorting in order to save her child. Jin, a student, tries to find a community she can belong to, while her family pressures her to return home. Marta, an illegal immigrant, works in hotels and restaurants to support her mother. Valerie, a journalist, suddenly faces a fading marriage. Interweaving these stories with the background of the global Occupy movement in 2011 New York, ALLURE is a politically charged, powerful drama about the most personal events in our lives.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: These drifting, unresolved stories may lack dramatic punch, but Mr. Nikolic, who teaches film at the New School, draws lovely performances from his cosmopolitan cast and oodles of atmosphere from a spare piano-and-strings soundtrack.
Rotten: This portrait of strong, independent women grappling with change in their individual lives holds initial allure, but the effect proves ephemeral.
Rotten: The end results are too diffuse to have the desired impact, with the result that Allure ultimately has the feel of an experiment that doesn't quite pay off.
Throwback to intelligent cinema from earlier times. Really refreshing compared to all the Hollywood remakes.
this is a very smart film. it is about the “occupy” movement, but in a very subtle way also challenges occupy by the stories of women in the film who have nothing, formally, to do with occupy. i’m glad i checked it out.
Follows the stories of five women in NY. Very poetic, with great atmosphere!
