Richard HodkinsonReviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 June 2020
4.0 out of 5 stars
Slow but interesting character drama with sex and emotional undertones. Worth a watch
Verified purchase
Low budget, inense relationship and sexual desire drama. Good to watch, and the emotional undercurrents and characters are really well shot byt the director. Dialogie can be a bit pedestrian at times, but then peoplpe new to the subject matter may need this. Explosition is rather clunky at times, but it doesn't matter too much. Realism is the style, and it's intimate and like you're in a room with some interesting friends. However, at the end, the characters suddenly grow their Jerry Springer moment psychological degrees, which makes it, while insightful, rather less realistic as a piece of art. An capitivating look into the pitfalls of not being good communicators in your relationships - despite your best efforts! Definitely one worth watching.

Great performances, beautifully shot
Verified purchase
When married couple, John and Harper, have new friends, Em and Levi, over for drinks during a severe hurricane, they don’t realise that a throwaway comment about swinging will lead to a night of excitement, revelation and disaster.

A great little story, beautifully shot; these actors are amazing. The performances are nuanced and compelling. The characters and their relationships felt very real. Loved it.

Interesting take on relationships
Verified purchase
This is an interesting take on relationships that doesn't suffer much from being low budget. As the story develops you gradually get an impression of the personalities behind the masks, except for Harper, the one that triggers the nights events, and we get to see if our earlier assumptions are endorsed as the recriminations play out. For me they larger are. Could just about accept Harpers volte face as plausible, along with some inconsistency in Harper's partner's take on events. Partly about miscommunication as another reviewer has said, but also about not wanting to see or listen. Nothings perfect and this isn't, but its certainly well worthy of a viewing

Overall great drama rom-com
Verified purchase
Pretty good acting for an Indy movie, and a script written by someone who understands spousal dynamics and they way weakness can crack things open.
The conversations in this film were very realistic. The acting was excellent.
Give it a try!
