Storyline

Tom Noonan's dark comedy features a husband-and-wife team of psychotherapists who run a New-Age therapy group out in the wilderness. Late one night, Jack and Rita are visited by one of their patients, Cosmo, and his wife, Arlie. Cosmo's wife has felt "left out," since her husband spends so much time with the therapists and confides all of their secrets to them. Arlie has insisted on meeting them--the evening begins awkwardly, then painfully grinds on, as various tensions and power struggles emerge between and among the two couples. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Powerful, human and profound!
13 July 2003 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Loved it! A 10 as far as I'm concerned. I'm critical by nature and I think this movie was perfect. I hope to find it in a video store so my wife can see it too. Complex, real dialogue. Shows real insight. A lot of talk and never a dull or false moment. Nothing mundane about it. I'm sorry he hasn't received the praise he deserves for the incredible stuff he is writing and directing.
