Reviews
Mine: Well acted (with the exception of MacDowell), but who ultimately cares about these folks. You get to the end and kind of go "Ick, I'm glad I don't know any of them!". A movie that actors love.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A selfish, successful lawyer--whose wife has turned frigid and whose sister-in-law has become his lover--welcomes an old college friend for a visit, little dreaming the effect he'll have on all of them. This intriguing, exceptionally well-acted first feature for writer-director Soderbergh took top prize at the Cannes Film Festival; its deliberate pace and talky nature are reminiscent of an Eric Rohmer film--and like one of his, it's not to everyone's taste.
