Storyline

Sue Silverman feels 'neglected' in bed by her hard-working husband Andrew and serially seduces men to 'meaningless' motel sex, even Rick Hudson, a contractor and fellow fund-raiser. After being swept into bed at work by French architecture writer Laurent Dekker, Sue seeks help from Dr. Robert Gardener, who discovers a childhood root cause. Andrew is no longer interested by the time she's ready for addict clinic, and temptation lurks even there. Written by KGF Vissers

"I found love here"... based on Sue Silvermann's book
2 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

While the film title is a bit trite, and has been used many times, this is a decent made for TV film that can help women.

I had not read the book but based on Ms. Silvermann's experiences this film shows Sally Pressman ( rather believable, and empathic) as bored housewife looking for an outlet. She doesn't understand however, why she is never satisfied ( whether it be home, family or with her various involvements with assorted men).

The marital discord begins when she is bored with her marriage and begins to let go. There is a dysfunctional relationship with her father which comes to light later in the story.

Sue finds herself searching for happiness, or even just a sense of fulfillment from men, and any male attention. It is damaging to her psychologically, yet she keeps repeating the same pattern.

As she enters therapy she begins to become self-actualized and finds there is a reason for her "acting out" behavior and need for male attention.

Overall, this film was done rather well for an LMN movie as it touches on some realities which newly married women must deal with, and also the psychology of relationships and how she ends up becoming involved with certain men. recommended. 9/10.
