Whoa! As I watched the film, I kept thinking:  "OMG, I think I'm watching a porn film."  How can this be when I'm also thinking that this is a remarkable film & I'm enjoying every minute. Superb acting and writing, that's how.  I loved Helen Hunt who single handedly made me feel completely comfortable watching a lovely porn film.  I gave it 4 stars.

Next up:  Hitchcock

  2. I have always enjoyed Helen Hunt. She's a pretty good actress. I just saw her in "Twister" the other night.
    William Macy is also a wonderful actor.
    Have a great evening Marge!

  3. Hi Marge, I like Helen Hunt too. I may have to rent that movie now that I have more tv time. I remember I saw a movie with my dad and it had love making scenes and I was a litte uncomfortable but my dad said love making is natural way of showing love. I sure miss my dad! I am reading again too. I finally updated my blog and added lots of pictures.
