Nicole Conn, who wrote and directed, has not yet learned to do either job with spontaneity and naturalness, and the function of each scene is made so awkwardly clear that we wonder why the characters don't catch on as quickly as we do.

While the film undoubtedly attempts to pique the intellect, it is, above all else, a love story, and, as such, should rouse the emotions as well. For a number of reasons, it proves unable to do so.

Despite the obvious sincerity of this project, the stilted acting by most of the secondary cast and the generally undistinguished direction give the script little chance to take root or take flight.

The dialogue is ponderous at such times, undercutting what might seem a more daring drama.

The movie strains for sophistication and wit, but the dialogue is starch. The central figures are appealing and smart, bu their company is not. Fortunately, director Conn compensates for her drab script with some erotic imagery.

Although the film is intelligent and full of passion, its polemical approach often takes the sizzle out of the story.

I think this is a movie that needs to be seen because it does speak to topics we've so little opportunity to explore in movies, but ultimately, it may be a movie that you respect more for what it's trying to accomplish than for what it has accomplished.
