Storyline

When a couple sets out to build their dream house, they enlist the services of a visionary modernist architect, whose soaring ideas are matched only by his ego. The woman is swept away by this uncompromising creative artist whose personality provides a stark contrast to her practical husband's. She is so taken she hardly notices the Architect is building HIS dream house.

The House of No Mirth
24 February 2017 | by (Old London, New England) – See all my reviews

It's tough to watch Parker Posey trudging through this sit-com sludge when she's created so many idiosyncratic characters from original material. Unfortunately 'The Architect' exemplifies blandness, which never reaches the level of either drama or comedy. This feeble tale unfolds with the zest of a soggy blueprint, as a prosperous pair of married suburbanites try to paper over their differences by commissioning an avant-garde architect to design their dream house. In the real world, a village idiot would require only the briefest glimpse of this pretentious poseur and his pompous pronouncements before dismissing him as a fraudulent narcissist. Worse yet, the credulous couple are never fleshed out to anything more substantial than cardboard cut-outs, while their dilemmas become increasingly shallow and predictable.

Ms Posey possesses a unique set of acting skills, and hopefully she'll soon be offered more distinguished projects - consigning memories of this tepid trifle to oblivion. At this point in her career, she seems far better suited for the role of a scheming seductress in a noir-ish mystery, than that of an artsy airhead housewife in a lame comedy.
