At the audition of Alec with Liz, it is established that Alec lives on the fifth floor while Isabel lives on the third floor. But at the beginning of the movie, Isabel comes downstairs from her apartment and passes another apartment door near the stairs. Approximately five seconds after she passes, Alec comes out of THAT apartment with his dog. Since when is the fifth floor at a lower level than the third floor? See more »
Benjamin can make you feel like you're the only man in the world when you're with him. That's what makes his work so good.
But you're never the only one.
Know what you should do? You should fuck them, and I mean that literally, fuck them all for revenge.
That's more Benjamin's style than mine.
What are you doing later? I'm going to a party at Diana Lee's house. You should come.
Diana Lee? You mean the actual Diana Lee? What time?

I truly enjoyed this film. I had heard so much about it online and from friends, so I finally watched it the other night. I was very impressed. It's so nice to see Glenn Close back in the limelight this past year. She is one of the best. Ms. Close was also the perfect actor to play the role of Diana Lee. She brought veracity, desperation, and charm to a character that may have otherwise been easily disliked. Desperation can be a truly likable quality in a film's character. Each one of the characters in this story had a quiet desperation about them. Desperation and denial. Key aspects of all human lives. I challenge anyone to tell me these were not realistic characters. The story itself or the situations they were put into, maybe not. You have a famed actress who has everything except a stable relationship with her husband, a struggling photo journalist slowly realizing her life isn't a perfect as it seems, a youthful lawyer seeking the perfect way to forget himself, and a young actor needing more than just a steady gig onstage. I highly recommend this film. You'll come away feeling something, and that is the most important thing.
