Great Indie film!
2 February 2010 | by lacucinastarSee all my reviews

I saw this movie on Showtime, although it is now available on DVD & Blu-ray. What a great little indie film.

I watched with a friend and we both thought, they just pulled pages out of my life! You feel like a fly on the wall in someone else's life, and yet it is like they are talking about yours. I loved it! The food is beautiful and the wine looks great. The conversation is thought provoking, the acting is fantastic, and you will be absolutely starving by the end!

Leisha Hailey from the "L word" is so adorable as a pregnant neurotic newlywed. Rachel Hunter looks beautiful au naturele as a gourmet lesbian amateur chef. Christina Hendricks & Joaquim de Almeida all I can say is their is a whole lot of sensual heat in that kitchen!

This movie is a great way to impress a girl and really gives guys something to think about!
