Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Ms. Passon ultimately seems to skirt some of the larger life questions hinted at along the way.
Fresh: The ending's a vague cop-out, but the movie is much smarter and more nuanced than the late-night-Cinemax setup suggests.
Fresh: If you're looking for a marriage movie that's friendly, upbeat and reassuring, I suggest you keep on looking; if you want a startling debut film that merits comparison with Ingmar Bergman, Woody Allen and Nicole Holofcener, here it is.
Fresh: Passon's portrayal of sexuality is not so much fluid as it is open, a frankly refreshing way of seeing.
A liitle Belle de Jour
A bit of a modern day Belle de Jour with a concussion as the catalyst. Suburban lesbian housewife leading a life of quiet desperation. An intriguing look at marriage, monotony/monogamy, boredom and our expectations. Stacie Passon and Rose Troche have created a truly beautiful film.
…"exploring their sexuality" or whatever. Snooze. It's not like the movie is bad, it's just it doesn't matter.

Such possibilities turned into little bits of no true character development.
