On a Scale From One to Five, This Gets a "Who Cares?", 19 December 1998
Author: Jemmy from How Sadley, Ma

This movie is a long. This movie is dull. It could have been interesting, and it probably should have been interesting, but it tried to do too much and you stop caring at all.

The main character, Rose, thinks that committing adultery is the worst crime. And yet *all* of her friends are doing just that. What does this say about society? At any rate, she falls for her photography teacher (Who wouldn't? Sean Bean plays yet another jerk, but he's a good looking jerk) who just happens to be the brother of her closest friend (who's having an affair with a politician.) She finds out before they actually begin their affair that he's married, though he doesn't volunteer this information.

So they have an affair and then she feels betrayed because when his wife get pregnant, he returns to her. Huh? She, in her own words, shouldn't have been having an affair to begin with. And she gets really really annoyed that he won't take her on a ferry ride.

Eventually her friend's marriage disintegrates in a subplot that no one cares about but it does have a rather fun scene in which a stereo goes through a window.
