CLOSER is director Mike Nichols' critically acclaimed look at four strangers - Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen - with one thing in common: each other. Adapted by Patrick Marber from his award-winning stage play, CLOSER "VIBRATES WITH EROTICISM, BRUISING LAUGHS, AND DYNAMIC PERFORMANCES. CLOSER IS A TRIUMPH!" - Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It does shock, I should say, in the way of men and women doing their psychological worst and most ruthless to push away those they have previously pulled close.
Fresh: Vibrates with eroticism, bruising laughs and dynamite performances from four attractive actors doing decidedly unattractive things.
Rotten: Like dramas by Pinter and others, what seems trenchant and perfectly pitched in the theater can come off as arch even when skillfully transferred to film.
Fresh: [A] chilly, caustic, foul-mouthed anatomy of modern romance.
It reveals an ugly truth about modern day relationships. Lust takes over as this movie stuns beyond belief. A gripping tale of how we all see ourselves in relationships and how others see us.
A MUST SEE!!!
I just watched this movie for the first time EVER last week & it was amazing! This isn't your typical happy predictable love story. It is however racy, vulgar, shocking & quite beautiful. It gives a great look at how people in relationships have these secret lives basically showing how people are not really close with each other at all & what defines a bad relationship to simply a relationship. CLOSER has some great storytelling, great charater development, great acting.. it's just great in general. A must see if you already haven't!!!
This is an extreme way to show how the grey parts of relationships exist. The acting is extraordinaire. Great cast and not a film to be taken lightly as your average love chick flick. I consider this film as my top 5 fav's. must see.
