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

Sure there are moments of real silly plot, and of over the top acting, but there is much charm in this small film, and a large part of it comes from the performance by Jeremy Northam as Edward Nathan. He balances Parker Posey's wildness, and transforms their all-too-brief scenes into sweet and touching romance. I also like Parker Posey in this film, her unabashed enthusiasm bubbles over and makes her character come to life. Perhaps not the most believable writer ever, she does come across as an interesting person.
I love this film mostly for the performances by Jeremy Northam and Parker Posey, and the dry little throwaway performance of the gay best friend. Not a great film, but not a real turkey either.
