Movie Info

Writer Audrey Wells (The Truth About Cats and Dogs) makes her directing debut in Guinevere, which won the screenwriting award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, where it made its world premiere. The film concerns Harper Sloane, a twenty-something upper class pre-law student who falls for Connie, a bohemian photographer 30 years her senior. Shy, waifish, and camera shy, Harper feels her life is mapped out for her, coming from a long line of successful, Harvard-educated lawyers living in San

Gives us a working relationship in progress rather than the usual Hollywood sitcom.

...a story about bad love - and how, sometimes, that is exactly what we needed at the time.

Polley immediately zeroes on Harper's insecurities and quiet fears and brings them delicately to the surface.

A thematically rich exploration of a May-December relationship.

I admire the filmmakers because they steadfastly refused to tack on a Hollywood ending.

A film that might have survived with a little integrity drowns in its own silly soapsuds.

A totally unbelievable coming of age love story told from the female's perspective.

As inert as outer space.

Its intelligent examination of the girl-man romantic dynamic is a refreshing change of pace.

This is the best acting in a completely insincere film I think I've ever seen.

A coolly hip chick flick.

Audience Reviews for Guinevere

Couple of great actors in what is essentially a silly little movie. The romance seems forced. Yes, back to the original point. A wee bit silly.

An intriguing movie! Interesting role for Sarah Polley. Stephen Rea is great. Gina Gershon is absolutely beautiful.

Great music by Christophe Beck!
