Has a lot to say if you're willing to listen
I am not going to write a long or detailed review, but I thought this film was so consistently brilliant in writing and performance and so unflinching in it's honesty I was not only impressed but will probably go to see it again within a week. The words "I love you." get thrown around in such a frivolous and sometimes desperate manner that you get frustrated at how meaningless they are. In films somebody saying that should mean something; that's what we're used to. But they really are meaningless in the face of the character's actions (except for Larry, who even though he might be a "**ing caveman" still did absolutely whatever worked to get his wife back and I believed truly forgave her- and actually, he even says it meaninglessly to Alice). It would be easy to judge these characters and hate them and the movie, but the truth is to the people on the insides of these involvements it always seems they're doing the best they can and really are being honest. Step out of the observers point of view, or think of somebody you've known who's like Anna, or Dan.
I also can't believe this film had me cheering (inwardly) for the unscrupulous fight Larry put up to win Anna back. Clive Owen owned this film. -Nita
