Trivia

The book that X first picks up in the bookstore, after being caught in the rain, is entitled "Women Loving Women." The title corresponds to a real book, by Jamye Waxman, however, the publication date of the book was not until April 1, 2007, which is after both the production dates and the release date for the film.

Not at all what I expected
25 November 2007 | by emmagbgSee all my reviews

Just saw this movie and felt the need to post my first review ever, for the record English isn't my first language. This movie wasn't at all what I expected it to be, it was more...interesting. The story is about a well payed hustler called "X" who lives with his two roommates; 18-year old Joey whom he has a sort of father-son relationship with and Andrew that he has feelings for but never have acted on. X's career provides him with a very comfortable material lifestyle at the expense of his emotional. A new client, an elderly gentleman, stir up emotions for X and things can no longer stay in status Q. The movie is narrated with X's thoughts, which describes situations in a sarcastic and humorist precise way. The narration is such a smart touch to bring the story forward and makes the otherwise poker-faced X so likable, what he says in his mind isn't always what he speaks out loud. I didn't expect this movie to be clever in the way it was and sweet, the character of young Joey added a touch of "feel good movie" without being too much. The trailer depicted it very differently; hustler with promiscuous roommates was the selling angle. I really want to give the director credit for the lack of uncalled for sex scenes, movies about hustlers/prostitutes tend to use the excuse to add more sex. This is one of those movies that's not exactly gonna make my top-ten list but will stay with me longer than most!
