At least Arliss Howard is in this....
11 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since he always delivers a decent performance, (even with sparse material) this is watchable.

Your basic LMN fare about a woman (Blair Brown) dissatisfied with her predictable life. She also attends therapy and discusses "control" issues with her analyst (she controls men by being an escort).

Remember "Klute"? (excellent Jane Fonda film in 70's). Well, apparently that plot was lifted for this film. Worth seeing for the performance of Arliss Howard as the befuddled husband; Paul Guilfoyle ("C.S.I.") as one of Blair Brown's sometime "clients". Brown gives an okay performance, but I have wondered what she has been doing since these type of films. 5/10.
