this is not love but a good movie
15 October 2015 | by lady_j_s_babeSee all my reviews

First case and point, I like to point out, is that this between them is not love. People confuse love with lust to often but what gets me is people are saying and I quote "that the mother is mean,selfish". An the people don't people to key parts of the movie where they speak about the history between th older woman and Paul's mom let's recap. Paul's mom confronts Nina an revealed that she knew Nina and Paul's father had affair for years behind Paul's moms, Nina is shocked to find that her friend well ex friend had known all these years about her affair with her husband. Plus let's not forget Nina has affairs with married men all the time which is also revealed, which is the reason why she is a single older woman with no family or steady relationship because has affairs with married men in hopes they will leave their wives for her, which they never leave their wives or the wife has found out an it breaks up family still they don't be with her in the end. So she comes to town and is on the rebound after breaking up with her married ex boyfriend who like all the other men in her life refuses to leave his wife for her! How for ironic of this story! So heartbroken and upset she starts a sexual affair with best friend's teenage son who is 18yrs old. Once again This is not love it's lust! Why? Because not to long ago Paul was just telling his high school sweetheart Cindy that he loves her (sighs) wow so your telling that after only knowing Nina for a short time fell out of love with Cindy and in love with Nina bullshit, he didn't really love her either , what he was feeling was lust not love and just because you share common interests like same color or favorite book,poem etc. Dose not mean your meant to be together. Yes they share common interests but they have two different life experiences trust that wouldn't have lasted because she would have at one point when to be with a man more her age or if he would have given up school etc. He would have years later blamed her even hated for his life turned out or could have been. Trust me I know and learned the hard way when I was 19yrs an got in a relationship with a 35 year old man,we had a common interests and every thing to but what we were feeling was lust I realized that later on so been there,done that but it's a good movie predictable but good.
