I agree with Rita, a strange and quirky movie. Interesting to watch, but I can see why it won't ever be a hit.

Strange, quirkly little film that wins you over based largely on the effervescence of Maggie Gyllenhaal and the eternal charm of James Spader! Two huge thumbs up!

A very interesting, sexy, erotic, kinky little movie. Excellent acting, interesting storyline, nice character development. Not your run of the mill everyday movie. We enjoyed it thoroughly, have watched it several times and will do so again. Maggie Gyllenhaal is amazing. James Spader plays a very different character from his usual stuff here. All in all - I recommend it highly.

This is a great movie, sexy, a little shocking and surprisingly tender. Both actors do a terrific job portraying these two oddball characters.

"While being very different, it proves there are 'uniquely' BEAUTIFUL people! It tells so many stories - it IS a love story, it is about rehabilitation, and it is poignant. Maggie Gyllenhall is a FINE actress and I can think of few who could have done it so well. James Spader is also remarkable.
I bought this movie as I need to view it about every 3 months as a gentle reminder that it takes all kinds to make the world go around."

"A real hoot of a comedic-drama that attractively portrays the alternative sex world in the simplest of plots;
: Boy meets girl, looses girl and re-finds girl. It's hard to notice because of the unusual behavior and visual and sonic styles added to by Angelo Badalamenti's score reflecting the overall quality of the production. Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader light up the screen with tender anger and love! A gem of sorts.
A/V; BD is competent in all ways ... soft image and grainy skies momentarily appear but the pic is strong and the sound has tweets and woofs at times.
Xtras; good feature and commentary add insight to production"
