Two people from completely different worlds meet by chance, thrown together as if by fate. Their attraction is immediately obvious and overwhelming. He is attracted to her beauty (she is a supermodel) and good humor; she is seduced by his charisma and honesty. With his gifts of poetry and tenderness, he opens her heart to the possibility of true love. But it takes a lot of courage to make a commitment. Is she truly in love with him? And even if she is, will she able to leave the cosmopolitan, superficial lifestyle to be with him? Written by

Robin, come on. You encourage him. I would think that you'd be appalled.
I don't know. I mean, he's got to be breaking some kind of feminist ethic or something.
A spiritual ethic?
A social ethic.
Definitely a gay ethic.

I don't really understand why this film hasn't done better--either on this site, with the public, or in the theatres. I've never seen Eric Shaeffer's studio films, but this indie was obviously made by someone with total artistic control over the piece, and it's all the better for it. Shaeffer avoids the usual traps of a writer/director/star--he's got talent in each of these areas, and isn't simply on an ego trip. It's a great film for anyone who likes to see a curiously mismatched, strangely well-matched couple meet each other on-screen. I wouldn't call it a romantic comedy, but I would call it extremely romantic (without being sentimental) and funny (in a nice, dry way). The connection and chemistry between Shaeffer and his co-star is evident from the first. I found the writing crisp, the storyline well planned and not predictable, and the character development deft. Among its many strong points is the perfect pacing of the piece, and the fact that the person in the film who is supposed to be such a good writer actually is. You understand why the writing read in the film (in voiceover) has the effect it does on the characters. If you can find it, rent it.
