Product Description

Leila (Lauren Lee Smith) is a sexually voracious young woman who connects with men through sex. One night at a party, she meets David (Eric Balfour). Later, as she has casual sex with a stranger outside, David and his girlfriend mirror her actions in their car. Their eyes lock, beginning a courtship ritual that initiates their own sexual affair. Leila and David get to know each other - which means being intimate - in bed, on the roof, in the park, everywhere. For them and other members of their generation, sex is communication. Just as Leila realizes her attraction to David is different than anything she has ever known, he retreats. Her explosive reaction knows no bounds. Now they must conquer their demons in order to move beyond the purely physical and satisfy the emotional connection they unknowingly crave.


Shot in sunny Toronto and set to a dreamy score, Lie With Me looks and sounds like an art film, but the end result isn't quite so lofty. The plot is thin and the dialogue superfluous, but no matter--Canada's Clément Virgo (Love Come Down) just wants to turn you on and he has enlisted two attractive, uninhibited young performers to assist in his aims. Leila (Lauren Lee Smith, The L Word) and David (Eric Balfour, Six Feet Under) meet at a party. He's with his girlfriend, but finds himself drawn to her. The feeling is mutual. She's alone, but quickly finds an unattached hipster with whom to have a tryst. David catches her in the act. Instead of turning away, he watches. They start seeing each other immediately afterwards. "I'm not hooked on danger, [I'm] hooked on sex," Leila claims, but she isn't exactly the most trustworthy narrator. She wants a purely physical relationship, while David wants something more. They return to their old lives, but the obsession refuses to die. Based on the novella by Virgo's partner, Tamara Berger, Lie With Me plays like a low-budget cross between Adrian Lyne's overrated 9 1/2 Weeks and Wayne Wang's underrated The Center of the World. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Customer Reviews

Good movie for adults.
As I mentioned before, I am not sure what to really think about this movie, nor am I sure if I liked it.
Morrigan Alexandros
Her character, despite being very sexual appears to feel very empty.

This was fun to watch yet at the same time rather disappointing (maybe depressing would be a better description). Fun if you go into it expecting sex, pretty faces and writhing bodies. But disappointing because there is little else besides. Depressing because the main characters appear so selfish, self-absorbed and are not in fact very likeable. Its main theme is about two emotionally immature individuals, learning rather late in life, the difference between lust and love. It's based on a short story by Tamara Faith Berger who also happens to be director Clement Virgo's wife. To its credit it tackles the lust vs love angle reasonably well.

For our protagonist Leila, life is one sexual encounter after another, free of emotional attachment, free of commitment, free of love. It opens with a naked Leila (the lovely Lauren Lee Smith) alone on the couch, masturbating while watching a porn video. There is no major dialogue until at least 10 minutes into the film and even then it is pretty banal if not trite, reflecting in a way the shallowness of these individuals. Director Virgo notes that he was trying to make a visual film as opposed to a talkie. And visually, it is beautifully shot. Leila goes to a party, meets David (Eric Balfour), with whom she feels an instant and mutual attraction. However he is with his girlfriend, Victoria (Polly Shannon). So she snares another lucky male whom she proceeds to bl__ and fu__ in the parking lot, in full view of David and his girlfriend, who naturally do the same thing, both couples more interested in the opposite pair than in their own partners. David of course is enthralled with Leila and hooks up with her. They have sex. Then they have more sex. And that's all they have. They don't really have a relationship. They don't communicate. They just copulate.

* SPOILER ALERT: This review reveals key elements of the plot *

I liked it. But it didn't resonate with me like the first five minutes promised it would. When the movie began, I felt Leila, the anti-heroine, promising me, "You will relate to me."

At first I did. The blankness in her eyes as she went out to get what she both needed and hated I had felt myself too many times. When Leila and David were playing their cat-and-mouse game, the "I'll show you mine if you show me yours," they both seemed six years old: emotionally, they both are. Things began to get uneasy for me as the viewer.

The next seventy percent or so of the movie was filled with more sex than you can shake an, er, stick at, and nothing about that bothered me (especially Eric Balfour's totally nude body). When the relationship between Leila and David began to unravel, it became apparent to me that both of them likely were diagnosable borderlines, a personality disorder, and from that point, my hopes for a successful resolution to the movie were nil. Would they live happily ever after? Would they continue their cycle of alternating emotional abuse? How would the movie end?

Ultimately, the ending DIDN'T satisfy, as I was afraid it wouldn't, but then, wasn't the whole movie about NOT being satisfied?

Director Clément Virgo's use of harsh lighting, fast panning, and extreme closeups is very effective in this film. I would consider watching some of his other work, but I'm not sure whether I'd recommend this one on its intellectual merits. On its more visceral merits, however, it fits the bill almost as well as Larry Clark's Ken Park.

Lauren Lee Smith is great in this movie. Yes, she is very sexy although a little anorexic. The sex in this movis is explict and hot. When I ordered this movie (unrated edition) I expected a hot movie, what I did not expect was a movie that also had some profound messages.

Ms Smith's character was frantic and needy, and sex was a way for her to get (love, approval, etc) immediate gratification on an emotional level. Her sexual responses are greedy and lustful. When she falls in love, she runs away from the feelings. The process she goes through is painful, but neccessary for her. The viewer is drawn in with her and becomes involved whether or not they want to be.

Her love interest took care of his elderly father. They had an excellent relationship. He would bath him and cook for him, and was his caregiver. The movie showed in graphic detail what being a caregiver means. When he passes, he breaks down and takes the viewer on a journey that is rare in films.

In short, if you like graphic sex and this movie has it, the sexual scenes are graphic but not vulger or sleezy. The story line is excellent and profound and I suspect that most women could watch this movie and identify with the main character. Good movie folks and it is a shame that only the sexual aspect is focused on.

"Lie With Me" is a sexually charged love story that somehow got away from the MPAA with an R rating. I think the filmmakers must be in the MPAA, because this movie's got some graphic scenes. We're talking full frontal male & female nudity, with sex that looks very unsimulated. You don't see full penetration, but...Well, you'll have to see it. This movie is adapted from a book and I hope the book had more depth than this, because I feel something must have been lost in the transition from book-to-screen. The movie is about Leila (Lauren Lee Smith), a girl a lot of people would call a "slut." Leila likes to have sex and she likes to have it a lot. She doesn't seem to understand love or a relationship, but she understands sex. Could this be attributed to a bad homelife? It could be, but the filmmakers don't really show her with a bad homelife. Her parents are getting divorced and her sister is about to get married, despite having had sex with her ex just a couple nights before the marriage. It's kind of bad, but not this bad. Anyway, Leila ends up at a party where she hastily drags a guy outside and begins performing oral sex on him. Meanwhile, a guy she met a few minutes ago named David (Eric Balfour, 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre') is sitting in a truck watching her with his girlfriend. As the girlfriend begins copying Leila and as both Leila and David have sex with their respective partners; They look at each other and something is there. They may not be sure what, but it's there. The next day, David goes looking for Leila and he finds her. She begins to masturbate on a playground for him, which freaks him out a bit, but he returns to her and they both have sex that I swear isn't simulated. There's almost no way it could be.Read more ›
