This was at times odd, uncomfortable, and disturbing-.but yet strangely enjoyable to watch. It draws you in and tosses you around a bit. At first, I was appalled at the "crossed lines" and seemingly lack of good judgement and self control, but then as the story continued I got use to the idea of it all, and came to the conclusion that there is nothing inherently wrong with four people who want nothing more than to love, be loved, and experience an intense connection with another. This movie wouldn't have worked had it not been for the strong performances, especially by the two actresses, who would be beautiful at any age. - Amazon.com/review
