Weak themes, embarrassing script
20 April 2014 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

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


film

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.
