talky, pretentious, with a dramatic core on one person
6 September 2000 | by gaynor.wildSee all my reviews

An isolated group of people talk fest movie, with quite wealthy and relatively young people near New York City. The dramatic focus is mainly on the hostess, who has a tragic story behind her fragile psyche, and one of the guests, who is professionally failing so badly that he is now focusing on 'truth,' in the most hurtful way, to all except the hostess. A Steven Spielberg-like presence, called Sprechman, nearly dominates the story without ever appearing. More or less worth watching, as a tearfultime filler, but not worth keeping.

two stars: only for filling time
