Storyline

April has just graduated from an exclusive Southern college. She's just returned home to her family mansion to prepare for her semi-arranged marriage to "the right man", a man approved by April's father, a Senator. During a trip to the local fair, April meets Perry, the kind of man she always wanted but never knew. Her parents are aghast, as Perry is exactly the kind of man they don't want her associating with. April must reconcile the expectations of her family and her fiancée with the passion she feels for Perry. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

As steamy and erotic as you let it be
20 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I have to admit that, of Zalman King's films, the only other one I've seen is <In God's Hands>-which is not erotic, but very sensual- and this is the only 'erotic' film I've ever really watched.

Having said this I let the film be what it wants to be; erotic. Nothing more, nothing less. If you watch <Two Moon Junction> having preconceptions about how erotica HAS to involve bad acting, or a lame script, you won't let its passion take over your film experience. I have to admit I wasn't particularly interested in the acting as much as the chemistry between the characters. I felt the acting fine, and chemistry top-notch=)

Not many people have seen <In God's Hands>, a film about three nomadic surfers, but just in case you either have or are planning to see this other Zalman King "great": After seeing it, you will appreciate what King was trying to put forth in <Two Moon Junction> after seeing <In God's Hands>. Passion. Sensuality. The difference is TMJ is erotic wheras IGH was about the surfer mentality and spirituality. In both films however, what you see and think are not as important as how you feel while you're watching them. The whole is greater than the sum of their parts.

Richard Tyson as the lead may or may not be adequate for guys, although attractive to most of us women. But whether you're a chick or not, you will find Sherilynn Fenn outright gorgeous, point blank. She's beautiful, sexy, sultry, seductive, mischievous, etc...not to mention a platinum blonde with a charming Southern accent. (Watch for a few tiny but oh-so-precious Milla Jovovich scenes=)

Overall this film obviously isn't an Oscar contender, because there is no category for "most sensual film". But the fact that this is a little-known gem with a LOT of sex appeal,- no taboos, no manipulations or even morals to shove down your throat- is what gives this film its unique appeal, and "the sky is the limit" sexual power; the less preconceptions you have, the more you will enjoy the film =)

Did I mention the soundtrack perfectly complements the eye candy and captures the mood of the film? Another Zalman King strength.
