    A very naturalistic film about a lesbian mum who becomes a prostitute which strikes a perfect balance between great understated acting and beautiful camerawork as the storyline unfolds against the background of renovating an apartment.

    Could have been done so much better but agree with critics Robin Weigert is superb.

    So I gave this film a shot because it was starring two of the female lead from Sons of Anarchy, but it was a slow weird film that I didn't really like that much. The first half of the film was decent, but then it got worse and I wasn't too interested in what was happening. Then there was a turning point in the film and I might have been done paying attention by then, but I was confused on how everything ended up so good after what happened. Oh well, I might have not been too focus, but that's the film's fault partially.

    I sat through ten minutes or so of this and turned it off. I don't mind a movie being slow-moving if the characters are interesting or there's something important being said, but none of that was happening here.

    Intelligent and sexy but a little too safe.

    A sparse and thoughtful drama about a mid-life crisis in same-sex parents.

    The movie presents a good premise, builds up the plot, offers you fairly interesting characters and then pretty much lets you down midway through. With strong acting performances and aside from a narrative that seems to run out of ideas, this movie is still well made and worth a casual viewing.

    Better than thought, but still stays on a superficial level.

    there's been a few "lezzie hooker" or "frustrated housewife" flicks; most of them you definitely didn't watch for the "story". this was quite a nicely handled "mid-life crisis film" even if it floundered towards the end. well, i liked it. deserves a watch 'specially for the 30s and up.
