Andrew is no longer interested by the time she's ready for addict clinic, and temptation lurks even there. Written by

This was a pretty terrible adaption of Sue William Silverman's memoir about a wife struggling to understand and overcome her obsessive sexual behaviour that compels her to have multiple affairs.
Its a Lifetime movie so I wasn't expecting much but considering the subject matter it was relatively bland. Not much sex here for a movie about sex addiction, mostly just one affair shown in wistful remembrances. I did however enjoy David James Elliott (JAG) in a wasted role as affair guy #1.
Ultimately I would have liked to have seen more of a progression of 'Sue's' behaviour, instead we just join a seemingly bored housewife arranging flowers, cooking dinners for her husbands business partners, lunching with friends who has an affair. And then another. The only real sign of an uncontrollable problem was her habit of collecting tokens, and some obsessive behaviour when it came to believing or needing these married men love her. Honestly her life never seemed that out of control to me. Not in an "addict" way at least. I think this aspect probably came through better in the book.
I will though once Sue entered therapy and admitted that there'd been hundreds of men and affairs the whole sexual addiction thing made more sense. I guess they left that out to make it all the more shocking later on. The reasons why she behaved the way she did was very sad but ultimately not resolved as nobody goes to jail for what they did to her. 4/19/15
