Another in the popular trend of hip dialogue driven character studies.
30 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'AFTERNOON DELIGHT': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Indie comedy film about a stay-at-home mom, going through a midlife crisis, who invites a stripper/hooker to come stay in her family's home (in order to try and 'help her'). It was written and directed by Jill Saloway; a TV writer and producer (for popular shows like 'SIX FEET UNDER' and 'UNITED STATES OF TARA') making her feature film writing and directorial debut. It stars Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor and Jane Lynch. The movie is a good character study that's full of hilarious, yet mostly realistic, dialogue. It also gives Hahn a great opportunity to show off her dramatic lead acting abilities. I really enjoyed this movie!

Hahn stars as Rachel, a mother (to a five-year-old son) who's unhappy with her current employment situation and bored with her marriage and lack of sex life. She sees a shrink, Lenore (Lynch), about her problems but the psychiatrist is always telling her about her own relationship (with another woman). One day Rachel talks her workaholic husband, Jeff (Radnor), into going to a strip club with her and her friends. She meets a young stripper named McKenna (Temple), when her friend buys her a lap dance, and is fascinated by her. Rachel then begins stalking McKenna, with the intent of helping her, and invites her to come stay at her house (when she ends up homeless on the street, temporarily). She then learns McKenna is also a hooker and experiences a sexual awakening through her friendship with her (while McKenna acts as a nanny to her child).

The film is pretty sexually explicit and raunchy (to a disturbing level at times) but I think that's the intention of the filmmakers. It's supposed to make the viewer feel awkward and uncomfortable and really question things. Temple is cute and perfectly cast, Lynch is hilarious and Radnor makes a good love interest for Hahn but it's Hahn that really makes the movie work (Hahn and Saloway that is). Saloway's script is brilliant and her directing is perfectly fitting for the material. It's very dramatic and real (when it needs to be) and also hilarious and offbeat (in natural ways) as well. The comedy is never too exaggerated (except for Lynch's character) and that's what I like about it. It's another in the popular trend of hip dialogue driven character studies (like 'DRINKING BUDDIES', from earlier this year). The dialogue often seems so real that I assume it must have been mostly improvised (but I'm not sure how much of it actually was). Like 'DRINKING BUDDIES' it made Quentin Tarantino's top 10 list (from earlier last year) and I think it's one of the better movies of 2013 as well!
