There are only 3 characters whom interact awkwardly while showing immense intelligence.
I was thoroughly enjoying Jonathan Pryce putting the other 2 throught the ringer.
1. This is a movie adaptation of a play by David Hare
2. It centers around three characters
3. It deals with alcoholism and infidelity
4. But mostly it's a debate on the value of the AA programme
5. I would have fallen asleep, but zinc beds are too darned uncomfortable
Slow moving, rather dry British movie fails to hold the viewer's interest despite the efforts of Jonathan Pryce as a somewhat annoying wealthy businessman and Uma Thurman as his trophy wife. Paddy Considine's character runs the gamut from boring to blotto to bewildered, stopping just a tad short of believable.
I've read that the original play is bewitching, but the magic certainly hasn't transferred to the big screen.
Recommended only as punishment for alcoholics and cheaters.

Just my opinion, but this movie is awful and stilted. And it is written by someone who seems not to know much about Alcoholics Anonymous or addiction. I can't speak for AA. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Ann E.
Thurman made this film painfully unwatchable. I was fascinated by the ideas and thoughts but every time she opened her mouth I wahs cringing so I gave up.Published on March 20, 2013 by BAC RN
