NB No Subtitles on the Dvd, either for hard of hearing people or foreign languages. After an unremarkable start in which a talented young pianist (who never practises) arrives, with a huge trunk full of strappy tops and promptly falls for man who eschews the use of a comb, this builds steadily into a tense family drama. Very well acted throughout with Guy Pearce giving a particularly subtle performance. Quite interesting to compare it to Albatross, which has a comparable plot but is set in the UK with Felicity Jones in the daughter role. One minor flaw is the overuse of close ups which became wearing by the end, but I suppose reflect the close up look we get at the relationships on screen.

The story is not specially original, and the outcome is predictable, but this is still well done, thanks to the naturalistic performances from Felicity Jones and Guy Pearce, and good photography and direction. The plot is at times a bit "ho hum", and Sophie's motivation isn't clear. But the old well-furnished house is a good metaphor for the family life that could well come crashing down. I felt the very last scene (an echo of the very first) was unnecessary and rather curious.

This is an unusual film not in the story line (which isn't daring or new), but it turned out to be quite good overall thanks to a good cast and direction.

Plot wise it's a straight forward affair, Sophie (Felicity Jones) is a young British exchange student who moves into the family household of Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce), they live in a small town outside of New York. At first the family seem quite normal and content, but it becomes obvious over time that Keith is somewhat bored in his relationship with his wife Megan (Amy Ryan), and his daily routine lacks any drama and surprises for him. In short it's a story about a man in his mid 40's pondering his future, desperately looking for something exciting to happen. Keith has a daughter, Lauren (Mackenzie Davis) who complicates events even more by her friendship with Sophie.

Sophie is the temptress and the potential excitement in this story... Felicity Jones plays the part very well, not just in spoken word but the way she acts and looks, the innocence at times of her performance is quite refreshing. Similarly Guy Pearce plays the bored and tired husband very convincingly. Critically for a film of this type, there is a genuine strong chemistry in the performances smouldering and building up from the very first moment they meet. Despite his attempts to keep his distance Keith and Sophie are unable to turn the heat down and their relationship expands into something more than a physical attraction (and despite the age difference)

Drake Doremus is the young Director who encouraged the cast to improvise their scenes (a rough story and many takes evidently) it's an unusual way to make a film, but it does give a feeling or a more realistic and natural (believable) performance.

I watched this film a couple of nights ago and I cant get it out of my mind. The scenes between Guy Pearce and Felicity Jones are really good. It shows what good actors these two are because they convey so much emotion and were so convincing.

Without a doubt, the biggest waste of time of a film that I've ever had the (dis)pleasure to endure. If there's ever been a film that should never have been made,.... No story, no plot, no direction, poor acting and no ending worth 'hanging in there' for.

I wasn't surprised to find that the acting in this film was improvised. It feels very natural, like you are eavesdropping on a family at a certain time of their lives. There are little quirks here and there - such as when someone mishears what the other has said and are then corrected - which make it seem even more natural. The performances of the cast are wonderful all round. It is a film about loneliness, isolation, and re-discovering love and life…. for a little while. Sophie's piano performance in the music class is Chopin's Ballade #2.

As most reviewers have said you will know in the first 20 mins or so if this is for you or not. The plot is nothing new but you are drawn into the film by the very fact it is so believable, it resonates with any post 35 couple wondering if the excitement of youth is gone forever.....Guy Pearce portrays such a man brilliantly. Feeling stuck teaching teenagers music in order to give his wife and daughter a suburban stable life (big house etc) he pines after his time in a rock band in New York. Auditioning for head cellist becomes the only excitement in his life. At this moment Felicity Jones arrives as an exchange student. The chemistry between them is immediate and tingles throughout the film as Keith (Guy) battles with his conscience & responsibilities. The reality of the acting actually has you feeling uncomfortable as you begin to feel his ethical and moral dilemma - definitely worth a quiet night in.....

Beautiful movie. Lovely subtle performances by Guy Pearce and Felicity Jones.
I have discovered that Felicity Jones is the Queen of movies that make my heart hurt. Loved her in 'Like Crazy' too, which I recommend if subtle, realistic, romantic dramas are your thing.
Guy Pearce is brilliant as ever, and the whole movie made me want to watch it all over again the next day, all the while hoping for a different ending.

Wonderful stuff.
