Editorial Reviews

Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in ADORE, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, ADORE is the English-speaking directorial debut of Anne Fontaine. Set in an Australian seaside town, ADORE establishes an aura of fable as it follows two women's plunge into uncharted waters. Watts and Wright fearlessly engage with the physical and psychological components of the story, capturing the complex emotions and powerful desires driving their characters. Strong performances from Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville complement Watts and Wright. ADORE radiates with intoxicating sensuality while exploring the intricacies of love, family, morality and passion.

Man, this movie keeps you guessing, builds great tension, and has some of the best moments I've seen all year. There is no nudity and nearly no violence, but that doesn't stop it from being an absolute thrill ride. America made movies like this once upon a time, but at least Australia and other foreign countries can still produce good, edgy, thoughtful drama.

First a disclaimer: if you've led a sheltered existence or believe that some ancient text originating from a tribe of goat herders in a remote desert millennia ago contains everything you need to know about life, you might not want to watch this film. Why? Because it's about real life. There's no rubbishy faux emotions, nonsense plot, huge CGI effects, or endless car chases and gun battles. It's a real movie about real people. The direction and camerawork are all put to the service of the story and the acting, which places this movie in the same category as The Lives of Others and House of Sand and Fog. You need an attention span to watch this film. You need to let it carry you along at its own pace, devoid of snappy jump-cuts and mindless action scenes.

Some reviewers seem to have had problems dealing with the subject, which is simply that the teenage sons of two life-long friends fall in love, each with the mother of the other. Apparently this scenario isn't covered in the Big Hollywood/Disney Book of Life. Fortunately the film makers weren't overly concerned with limited conceptions of human feeling, and this movie gracefully explores - without gloss or varnish - the joys and the pains of what follows in consequence. Any middle-aged person who's ever felt the stirrings of attraction for a younger person will sympathize with the magnetic pull of this dynamic, and any young person who's ever felt attracted to a more mature person will likewise know the feeling of wanting to "own" that person and monopolize their attention.

And anyone who's ever experienced any kind of affair will know about the tribulations that can result, due to the expectations and attitudes of others.

'Adore' is a quiet little film that seems to have missed the theaters because of the topic. It is a lush, descriptive film of love, the wrong kind for these characters. It was sometimes difficulty viewing because of the graphic material. The acting is outstanding, and the surroundings glorious.

Naomi Watts, plays Lil and Robin Wright, plays Roz. They have been best friends sincechildhood. They both live in beautiful homes near the ocean in Australia. They both have families, Lil's husband died in an accident. The sons, of Lil and Roz, Ian and Tom have grown up together and are best friends. Roz's husband has taken a new position in Sydney and is rarely home. Both women are in their forties, facing the downside of life, and somehow they can't seem to find the right man.

Their sons are now men of about 20. They all hang out together, and one thing leads to another. Roz stops the affair, and Lil tries to do the same. Both men marry and have children. And, then ,all H*** breaks loose, and lives are upset and , the now grandmothers find themselves in the same boat. This is a film of loneliness and searching, mistakes and love, and messes that change people's lives.

The script came from a book by Doris Lessing, called 'The Grandmothers'. This is a chancey film that hits the right notes, but it seems the subject matter turned people off. A brave film that is perfect for discussion. Robin Wright and Naomi Watts are perfection in these roles. A Gould film if the mood suits you.

I had a chance to see this on a foreign-made DVD, and found the movie an interesting adaptation of the late, Nobel Prize Winning, author Doris Lessing's novella quite well-done. While the movie -- and the novella -- deal s with delicate subject matter, it is in no way taboo. Because: the women, the two mothers, become infatuated -- and fall in love with -- each other's sons, NOT their own! And, because the affair takes place in Australia. After living here for a while, I discovered -- by reading newspapers and reading about the laws (mind you) -- that, until recently, they DIDN'T consider it statutory rape or sex with a minor if the teens in question were 16 or 17 and above . I believe that has changed, now, but for the period when this film -- and the novella -- were set in, guys of 17 years of age (which the two sons seem to be) were considered "legal".

The premise is highly unlikely, but if Lessing had had only one mother fall in love with the other's son, it would have been too easy to have ALL of the characters treat only her as a pariah. Basically, one mother (played by Robin Wright) gives into her own lust -- and that of her friend's son, who kisses her -- one night. When the affair is discovered by the character played by Naomi Watts (and by the son of Wright's character) -- the other mother is reluctantly, and drunkenly, persuaded into an affair.
