Thought I'd investigate this after watching the Transparent series. Again the writing is bang on the money. Tight and contrivance-free. The film loses it's rigour during the party scenes but manages to finish with aplomb. Worth a watch 3 stars
I was curious because it had Hahn and Temple in it, but I finally came to watch it after binging the amazing first season of "Transparent". I know this is basically "White People: Problems and Privileges - The Movie", but Soloway has a knack for writing these great turmoils and silent revolutions of these boring characters and all the havoc, awkwardness and love it can possibly wreak.
I like Juno Temple more and more, i think these roles suit her a lot. She s sexy and sweet at the same time and of course talented. I like the movie as well, a interesting story about a married couple who s facing the habitual problems in their sexual lives, while the woman tries to break the ice. Hahn is amazing Along with Temple.
Plot: Eine "Weiße Ritterin" (vgl. white saviour) nimmt eine unheilbar moralisch verkommene Sexarbeiterin auf, um ihr konservativstes Vorstadtleben erträglicher zu gestalten. Nach dem voraussehbarem Desaster, zerbricht die Charity-Kulisse. Dies wird im Film aber nicht bearbeitet: Schuld hat die Outsiderin statt die Verhältnisse – Lösung: Rückkehr in die spießige Kleinfamilie und Sex.
Immerhin: Bechtle-Test bestanden.
