A repressed and uptight socialite, Rebecca (the beautiful Barbara Niven) lives a perfect and pointless life. She is the ideal wife to her husband (John Heard) and mother to her three children. But Rebecca has a secret, something her friends don't even know. The last person that she expects to reveal it to is a high priced escort named Paris (True Blood's Jessica Clark). Rebecca could never have guessed that through Paris, she would discover the answers she's been searching for. Her journey to raw passion allows her to reclaim her body and her sexuality. From renowned woman's director, Nicole Conn (Elena Undone) comes a powerful film of female sexuality and empowerment.

Overall I am frustrated with this DVD. The actors and storyline are strong and there is definitely a lot of chemistry between the lead characters. However, I could barely hear / understand the dialogue as the audio quality was so poor. I turned the volume up to maximum but then the audio track became deafening and I still struggled to make out what was being said. In the end I had to watch it on my lap top, using headphones and still found it hard to make out the audio!

NEWSFLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After checking on PECCAPICS website I found the following information regarding the audio on this DVD:

NOTE IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE DVD:

To all Nicole Conn fans who have purchased A PERFECT ENDING in the UK and Ireland, the audio default is Dolby digital 5.1. If you do not have this facility, please change the audio selection to stereo 2.0 - This will sort out any sound issues! :) Happy Viewing!

What a brilliant film, both Barbara Niven & Jessica Clark give amazing performances & their chemistry is awesome. The characters are believable which makes it feel even more realistic. Has to be my all time favourite lesbian themed film. Niocla Conn & Marina Rice Bader have created an absolute masterpiece. 10/10 is not enough. Can't wait for the DVD to arrive so that I can watch again & again.

The film is a love story or 'making love' story about Paris (Jessica Clark) who is a young, incredibly beautiful and charasmatic, good-natured, dark-haired woman who works as a high-priced escort but who is also a creative artist by day. Rebecca (Barbara Niven), a blond, straight up, aging middle-aged typical Stepford wife. The initial voice-over also narrates a cancer affliction that has grown beyond hope. The film tries to highlight more serious points than it has time for. For instance it tries to hint at first that the cancer is growing in Mason (John Heard).

Rebecca has lived a Stepford wife existence in creating a perfect family with her husband Mason Westridge (John Heard). The only signs of troubles are their hostility towards each other and a differing in opinion that Jessica (Kerry Knuppe), their only daughter, does not get stock shares of the family business. I watched this film several times to understand the issues raised in it. I felt that the deeper issues of rape, step children's rights and paternal hierarchical power imbalances were not addressed enough. Why raise them ? It was almost like having crumbs left on a plate of what should have been cordon bleu fayre.

Rebecca feels an emptiness and confides in her two lesbian 'besties', Sylvie and Shirin, that she has never climaxed during the act of sex and that she and Mason only do it once every six months, which suits her well. One of her friends suggests that she try a very discreet escort service run by her own cousin Valentina (Morgan Fairchild).

It is then that Rebecca meets Paris and through a series of very discreet meets in a fancy hotel room. At first the very nervous Rebecca tells Paris to leave. The scenes of how Rebecca builds up confidence to see Paris is hilarious.

I get the concerns about the poor audio quality. It spoiled a dialogue I strained to hear, and distracted from the believable passion between the characters excellently portrayed by Barbara Niven and Jessica Clark.
Can I laud Niven for her body, and showing us all that there are many forms of beauty? She should be proud of the beautiful woman she is. And of course Jessica Clark is delightful, and such a good actor she has convinced me that I could enjoy a performance by a gay actor in any role they undertook.
I have long held the view that racism will never be eradicated until we have black and other non-Caucasian actors in roles where their ethnicity is not the reason for them getting the part. The same is true here. For true sexual equality films like this have to be considered mainstream, the message reaching and persuading those who would discriminate.
For me this is less a "lesbian" film, rather it is about the developing passion between two people no matter how they came to meet.
Like the excellent film Room in Rome I will watch this movie many times. It is already a favourite.
As the author of Kindle novel Women 'n' Love, I love this film and wish it had been me who wrote it.

I consider this film should be labelled mainstream. Because the message in it is for all of us. It is not about lesbianism, it's about love.

Sexually repressed and frustrated housewife whose kids are almost ready to leave the nest and whose marriage is on the rocks takes advice from her lesbian best friends and decides to try an affair with a woman. She books an appointment with a professional agency and after some initial misunderstandings and awkwardness, she tests the water with the beautiful and much younger Paris (Jessica Clark) who has a story of her own.

Barbara Niven is convincing as the uptight and sexually insecure, but socially perfect, housewife and most of the other actors are also doing a good job although some of the conversation and acting is somewhat contrived and ham. It is at times clichéd and heavy on the symbolism and metaphors, but entertaining and pretty sexy with an interesting pairing in Niven and Clark.

One thing that really annoyed me, though, was the music drowning out the conversation in many of the scenes. How could they have failed to notice that when editing?? Especially when there are no subtitles!!!
