A beautiful and talented fashion designer's excitement in landing a dream job is complicated when her new boss takes more than a professional interest in her, which makes her question her own values, threatens her marriage, and forces her to make a life-changing decision. Written by
I kept in mind as I watched that this was not a pro-lesbian movie, or even necessarily an anti-lesbian movie. It sounded to me like a movie where a woman (fashion designer! how cool!) is in a bad work situation where her boss is hitting on her inappropriately.
Indeed, that's what it was. I found the premise interesting and that's what I got... sort of. What made this movie bad was:
it was unconvincing and unrealistic
seemed like it wanted to make a point or follow a theme (traditional
vs modern, sexuality, fidelity, family, racial tensions) but they were scattered and weak
pointless scenes and conversation
none of the characters seem to matter
embarrassingly flat script, most regrettably at the "climax" of the
and another point, which I'm not sure is good or bad:
unabashed focus on hot model-looking women and their high fashion
outfits, even with side characters
I have to say, there were a lot of beautiful dresses and outfits here. It is the strongest element in the entire movie, and I found it enjoyable. They could have trimmed this movie into a clothing catalog and I would have liked it. This point bumped it from a 2 to a 3 for me. The Iranian decor and Iranian lines tossed throughout were cool, too. That was about it.
Honestly, it felt like I was watching The Room, but a fashion themed one with much less sex (which I am fine with--I'm not sure this movie could have handled sex gracefully either). I'm not much of a movie snob but I felt like turning it off after 15 minutes. Maybe I should have. But I decided to write a review instead.
