Movie Info

When Andrew invites Lucian and his girlfriend Elizabeth for a weekend vacation, they don't expect Andrew's sister Miranda and her Baudelaire-obsessed boyfriend Gerald to show up as well. Overwhelmed by Gerald's antics and the constant irritating horseplay with Miranda, Andrew and Elizabeth split. Lucian, however, decides to stay, as a simmering, sexual tension develops between him and the flighty, flirtatious Miranda. When Gerald explodes after losing everything during an alcohol-fueled poker game with Lucian, Miranda finally gives him the boot. But as she and Lucian begin to dance around each other, their surroundings show threatening signs that Gerald may never have left.

Critic Reviews for Backgammon

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

The film's musings on artists and muses tries to be deep but gets bogged down in tiresome booze-soaked mind games.

An uncertain drama full of attitude it can't back up with action.

Something is off from the first scene.

The creators of the lame psychological thriller Backgammon try and fail to nail twentysomething bourgeois-bohemians by treating them like human dartboards.

The new feature film Backgammon has at least one thing in common with its namesake board game: After watching it for just a few minutes, you're bound to get bored.

The imagery fails to express either the characters' or the filmmakers' obsessions or synchronicities.
