The tender ways that love complicates a relationship
This very special movie is built around the tensions that develop among lovers and close friends, as a result of different needs and, specifically, different takes on what love is.
All the main characters are sympathetic, and the choices they make--even when you figure they might be making a mistake--are understandable and defensible. No one does anything really stupid, but what they do is enough to create the tensions that drive the plot.
The actors bring keen sensitivity to this very human, tender film. The director must be in love with Los Angeles, because the shots around town are among the most gorgeous you're likely to have seen.
