  • Summary: Harper Sloane (Polley), an affluent college graduate on her way to Harvard Law, meets a much older Bohemian photographer named Connie (Rea) at her sister's wedding. She moves in with Connie and mixes romance with her unorthodox education in the ways of photography.

  1. Disarms with its sincerity and frankness.
  2. 90
    Offers something magical in the haunting and hypnotic performance of Sarah Polley...(the film) cuts deep.
  3. 80
    Affecting, gloriously acted.
  4. 70
    Rea hits just the right balance of sympathy and self-interest.
  5. Reviewed by: Jay Carr

    While the appeal of Guinevere is decidedly intermittent, it's there, and the acting is right on the money.
  6. 60
    Deftly mixes rueful sentimentality and trenchant observations about the constantly shifting balance of power that drives relationships.
  7. 40
    Partly because the seducer's technique is methodical--as a former conquest explains to the naive heroine--the movie's answers are too easy.
