A strikingly intelligent woman intrudes smoothly into lives of a contented couple. She seems to connect emotionally with Richard (Adrian Lester) as well as with Lelia (Jodhi May). The duo oblivious to each other relationship with the mysterious Frenchwoman.
Richard's struggles to contain unbridled passion for Sylvie (an androgynous though very attractive Anamaria Marinca) fearing the consequences on mentally fragile Lelia. The latter has her own secretive past. The thought process of Richard and Lelia lay bare to the viewers as we learn more about the characters motivations and anxieties.
Quite erotic despite lack of nudity. Based on Joanna Briscoe novel of the same name.
