Storyline

"Sex and Mrs. X" is an exotic drama that explores how one woman regains her sense of self through a sexual reawakening. Joanna is a woman secure in the knowledge of who she is: a perfect wife, a successful magazine journalist and a woman who's just celebrated her 10th wedding anniversary with her husband, Dale. But when Dale suddenly leaves her for another woman, Joanna's world collapses. Her self-esteem shattered, Joanna questions her attractiveness as a woman and her value as a human being. How did this happen to her? Follow Joanna as she escapes to Paris and learns the many secrets of seduction under the tutelage of Madame Simone. Slowly, empowered by her newfound knowledge and self-confidence, Joanna comes to understand her true self-worth. Written by DANIEL

Didn't you wish it was you?
24 April 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Admit it -- the more you watched this film, the more you wished you were Joanna (Hamilton). I love fun movies, and I thought this would be the standard Lifetime sturm und drang (sp?). I was pleasantly surprised. Real characters, real situations, and two hours of escapism. Plus a bonus -- inspiration! Yes -- I was inspired to try just a couple of Madame's (Bisset) tips. I'm buying a teddy this week. Honest!

Linda Hamilton plays Everywoman as well as any actress I've seen. She's a real woman with real emotions. Arguably the most underappreciated actress today, Hamilton continually reveals her grasp of character with her understated performances. And her beauty isn't classic, but fresh (and also real).

Jacqueline Bisset is also a darn good actress, with the added bonus of glamour. Harking back to the days of Ava Gardner and Lana Turner, Bisset shows her sensuousness by hiding it just beneath the surface. Exquisite!
