PLOT: The story follows a married couple Joanna Reed (Knightley) and Michael Reed (Worthington), apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague (Mendes) to whom he's attracted. While he's resisting his temptation, his wife encounters her past love (Canet).
CAST: Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington (Avatar), Eva Mendes, Guillaume Canet (Love Me if You Dare), Daniel Eric Gold ("Ugly Betty").
VERDICT: If we pretend that this movie isn't about the potential for infidelity around every corner, the possibility of having chosen the wrong guy, or the so-called intrinsic nature for men to stray, then there could be a great love story here—maybe even two. There are two options. Either this film will tell us the story of how two people who are in love fall in love with two other people OR it'll tell us the story of two people who, when given the opportunity to stray, chose—once and for all—to be together. Those are the best case scenarios. Worst case scenario, one or both of them get hurt and we all leave the theater wanting to clip Cupid's wings for aiming to strike us with the fickle fate of love.
