Beautiful, thought-provoking, painful

As another viewer noted, this movie is a keeper. Jenatta, poignantly played by Joely Richardson, is swimming in the deep end, drowning in a sea of emotions and moral dilemmas as she gets a taste of real-life pleasures and responsibilities and struggles to keep her head above water. Each unanswered question begs another: Why does she love Leonard but want to sleep with Ian? What is the difference between love and friendship? Is romance just a cover story for a power struggle? When is it too late to salvage love from the lost and found? In the hands of an inferior script and lesser actors, the plot could become a mere cliche - the one about women torn between a color-outside-the-lines bad boy and the good guy you marry and bring home to mother. But this movie, written and directed by playwright David Hare, is a moving exploration of the meaning of life and the fragility of human relationships. (P.S. How could you not love a movie with Gary Oldman?)

Definitely a keeper

This is a haunting tale of love and loss, gravity and guilt. It asks questions in a new way and is pleasing by not providing answers. It might be for some worth a second or third viewing.
