"Where is this love? I can’t see it, I can’t touch it. I can’t feel it. I can hear it. I can hear some words but I can’t do anything with your easy words.”
Set in London, England, good Samaritan Dan Woolf, a struggling writer, takes Alice Ayres, a shady young woman and part-time stripper, to the hospital when she’s hit by a car, and they fall in love. One year later, Dan meets photographer Anna Cameron and tries to pick her up, but she rebuffs him. In revenge, Dan sets Anna up for an embarrassing encounter with sex-addicted dermatologist Larry Gray, but the two end up seeing each other. Then another year later, Dan and Anna begin an affair of their own, and relationships between the four collapse. Over the next year, all of them become obsessed with hurting each other and wreak some heavy emotional damage. Will any of them be strong enough to put this destructive sequence of events to a stop?
My thoughts; Moral of this story: all men are assholes who think with their dicks and love is a bunch of bullshit force fed to us to make our meaningless lives seem slightly less meaningless.
Despite the cynicism, I really enjoyed it. It perfectly fits the mood I’ve been in lately and unf, Natalie Portman is my girl.
