[DVD Review] The Garden of Eden

23 March 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The heart wants what the heart wants. Unless it doesn’t, in which case all sorts of emotional torture and mind games ensue. Ernest Hemingway’s The Garden of Eden, directed by John Irvin, sees an American couple traveling through France on their honeymoon when the fetishist wife with possessive issues brings a third party into the relationship, first as a toy and then as a rival as she loses control. The film doesn’t allow itself much time to build before it jumps into the story of a bizarre love triangle that attempts to shine some light on the impulses love can inspire.

Jack Huston and Mena Suvari play the newlyweds David and Catherine Bourne whose relationship starts off-balance; she hailing from a family of wealth, and he the writer that so intrigues her while giving her the air of control as he relies on her financially in all things. »
