Just reviewed this flick as an entry to a major film festival. I am truly surprised at how many people simply love this movie. I watched the entire thing, was fairly engrossed in it (loved the two lead actresses - to me the best thing about the film), then had to sit down to write up a synopsis, etc., for it. Upon writing the synopsis I realized I really didn't like this film much at all. I've seen so many tales of infidelity that have bored me to tears that I thought that this one had been different. I had some kind of disconnect going on and wondered what had changed between the watching and the reviewing. It dawned on me that this film was just a quite well made, feature length soap opera and that I felt tricked. It was like a sick day spent at home blowing my nose and watching one soap after another and getting deeply involved in them and then realizing, once the day was over, that I'd filled my brain with silly histrionics and bad writing. I'm the minority here, for sure.
