  • 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. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy

    Wonderfully acted and slickly mad. Acutely written with an eye to the motivations and ambiguities involved on both sides in such a relationship.
  3. Affectionately told ...beguiling.
  4. 70
    Rea hits just the right balance of sympathy and self-interest.
  5. Reviewed by: Mike Clark

    The cumbersome wrap-up, which follows a four-year narrative gap, seems too fanciful and bogs down what has been a stronger second hour.
  6. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy

    A good, though unremarkable, film.
  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.
