Intimate Strangers

Dont read the dvd cover, it's a spoiler.
Intriuging, slight movie, holds your attention though, especially psychotherapy junkies and people people.
Slow, French with subtitles. Like the nyt says "a sophisticated fairytale"
Worth a watch.

A haunting big hearted movie. Abbie Cornish is the focus in a visually stunning portrayal of the efforts of a young woman to navigate through sex and relationships. American Beauty from the other end.
