Rated R · 111 minutes · 2013

From director Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel) comes this beautifully shot tale of two female friends (Naomi Watts and Robin Wright) who watch each other’s sons (Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville) grow up to be rather strapping lads. So it only stands to reason that the women start sleeping with each other’s sons, and that causes all kinds of trouble and mixed feelings. That’s about it for plotting; the film will not blow you away on a story level. However, it is well acted, with Watts and Wright especially good as loyal friends who can’t help themselves. Fontaine knows how to make a good-looking movie, and there are many shots of awesome looking people in swimwear. The great Ben Mendelsohn is on hand as Wright’s husband, who gets himself a big surprise when he returns from an extended trip. This is Wright’s best role in quite some time, and Watts basically just needs to show up on a movie set to make things interesting.
