Storyline

A timid, insecure popular author with an overly-attentive professor husband decide to write an erotic novel. With encouragement from her sister and a bi-sexual friend, she goes to France with the intent of doing research at an inn where a diary she had been using documented erotic encounters. Instead she finds the inn is now a cloister for singing nuns. However, a young, divorced sound engineer is also there taping the nuns. While attracted, she mostly succumbs only to new fantasies until he follows her home to New York. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Quirky look at the love life of the literati.
26 August 2001 | by (St. Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie not liking Parker Posey, and left not minding her at all. Her performance as the quirky, impulsive, obsessive compulsive Margaret is nothing short of unforgettable. Her childish, rebelious nature works well with Jeremy Northam's studied maturity. They play off of each other fabulously well. In short, a very satisfying film.
