Saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival and can say that I was
truly taken aback by the brilliance of such a simple concept. The movie
about a married couple amid marital temptation is very well acted and
directed. The film captures the vibe of the Tribeca lifestyle and the
trials of a young marriage. Sam Worthington does an amazing job as the
reserved husband in love with his wife. The film is well-paced and
builds to a crescendo of will they or wont they infidelities. Visually
the movie is simple but the effects of overlapping pictures and
conversations highlights the similarities of temptation and the
differences between men and women. The story was truly amazing and the
best movie I have seen in 2011.
