This is one of the most realistic portrayals of what it is like to be a woman who is sitting on the fine line between sex and love. Can you truly have both? Can you love someone and have great sex? I loved how this film captures the magnetism between two people.The heat, passion and possibility of love derived from attraction. The fact that sometimes you don't see love until it's too late. When you have it do you truly appreciate it? It also makes you see the addiction of those feelings, of being complete yet helpless in the arms of another and never wanting that feeling to stop. The main characters did a great job and had awesome on screen chemistry. One of the best love stories I've seen that wasn't like a "chick flick". If you have seen this movie already you might want to see the following titles: Wicker Park Or Love Me If You Dare (french film). Both of these movies deal with the Closeness and Connection between lovers that were probably kismet.Minus the rawness of sexual activity.
