A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
There is no story or plot to this movie! It's a look into human nature in marriage - but here we see the entire spectrum of the husband and wife in two individuals who meet for sexual pleasure - at first!
The beginning - hot heavy thrill of first nighting! But this can last only so long. Then starts the comfortable time just being together - sex is an aside thing - nice but not necessary.
As the relationship continues it's not long until more is wanted from each partner. What that 'more is' one partner is usually unwilling to give into - compromising begins. At some point resentment steps in and things begin to fall apart in the relationship.
Beautifully told by Matt Ross this movie has something in it for anyone that has loved or tried to love. It's all the same, humans go through stages in friendships, brief romances, marriage! And this movie is a grand look into it.
The ending may seem odd - but I interpret it as nothing will actually change and their 'romance/sex thing' will slip away and they will get on with their lives.
We are just given a peek at it .................
