Storyline

Locked doors, and the monster inside us. In L.A., tightly-wound Julian Wright is separated. He meets Michael, she's seductive and uninhibited; by chance, a few days later they connect. The PR firm where he's creative director is competing to be bought by a household name (think Proctor & Gamble); winning will bring money, status, and a big ad budget. His firm's win depends on both his ideas and his maintaining traditional values; so, he puts his divorce on hold. His family adds problems: childhood memories and his sister's abusive husband threaten his balance. His fuse is short. Will self control hold obsession and fury in check, or is Michael the spark that will start a conflagration? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

J.P. Smith's masterwork
11 July 2009 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

Jada Pinkett Smith's writing was already proved, but this title was her directing debut. And a perfect one. If a story writer and director are the same person, and the movie happens to be well done, it usually results in perfect match of content and its visual interpretation, along with depth and the atmosphere. This movie excels in it. The depth of the dialogs and interactions are breath-taking. Acting is outstanding. Cast, scene and music selection are first league as well as camera work and cut. To avoid any spoilers, this movie can offer you a lot - love, passion, rejection, pain, process of dealing with unfortunate events, exposure of vulnerability of people regardless of their social class. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is able to enjoy well played drama and is equipped with ability to compassionate. I'm looking forward for more Jada Pinkett Smith's work.
