What's left is an unpleasant visit with a pair of hateful married couples who, in due time, prove mirror images of one another. Symmetry has rarely been so dispiriting.

"Between Us" is a showcase for great actors who could have used more consistent material to springboard off of.

Mirvish has taken an interesting approach to this story of two couples and four friends (often enemies) that love, loathe, betray, and -- in the end -- reflect each other deeply.

Audience Reviews for Between Us

Badly manufactured 2-couple drama loaded with artificial dialogue and hollow performances. David Harbour is the major offender in that regard, and while I love Melissa George I couldn't stand more than 25 minutes of this tripe. Even a morose Julia Stiles looked like she didn't want to be there. A big W.O.T.: waste of time.

Updated version I guess of Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf?. You know couples bickering about different issues.


"Between Us" is a well-made indie played by great actors (including Julia Stiles and Melissa George) about social gap between adult friends these days...and the fact that the abundance of money (or even the lack of it) could sometimes help make or break a relationship. With the targeted audience of young adults who are striving to seek identity for themselves, whether it is in career, money, or significant other, there is plenty of lesson to be learned from this film. Never mind the fact that it was created under such a small budget.
