Trivia

The bottles of beer in front of Fenton and Layla at the restaurant when their father takes them out is Duvel, a slightly sweet Belgian beer with 8.5% alcohol by volume. It is considered somewhat sacrilege to drink it out of the bottle as Layla does as like many Belgian beers, it has its own special glass in which it is supposed to be served to maximize all the characteristics of the beer when drinking it.

Too Contrived--Like a Soap Opera
7 September 2017 | by larrys3See all my reviews

This film is beautifully shot with its cinematography of the streets of New York City. Also, the characters here are rich and beautiful and, at times, they'll be some clever dialogue.

However, I also found most of the characters here quite manipulative and shallow and lots of the scenarios came across to me as contrived, like a soap opera in other words. To note, this is an adult drama, with some sex scenes, explicit references, raw language, and on screen drug use.
