I was so excited to see this movie, and went to see it opening night. Halfway through the movie I wanted to leave, but I was talked into seeing if the ending redeemed the movie. The acting was fantastic, despite the awful script and storyline. Lesbians do not need to watch man-on-man porn to feel sexual, and there was no satisfying reason given for them doing so. The storyline could have taken many other paths to create as much drama without Julianne Moore having an affair with Mark Ruffalo, giving the false impression that lesbians are sexual beings easily tempted to fall into bed with the next man. Annette Bening's question "Are you straight now?" is a very realistic reaction, but falsely indicates that homosexuality is a choice that can be changed. I don't feel that there is redemption at the end of the movie. In fact, half of the audience left before the film ended, and I wish I had been one of them. Bottom line: don't waste your money, or your time.

This was one of the worst movies seen in my life. I don't need to see a movie that starts out with two 15 year olds snorting coke, then continues with two lesbians watching gay male porn films while performing fellatiio. It went way beyond my bounds of good taste, and was totally mis-advertised. I found it disgusting and, along with my wife (both of us support same sex marriage and gay rights, btw) left after an hour of extreme antipathy.

Hated it! What a waste of money. Thought we were watching a documentary about lesbians and lesbian living. Love Mark Ruffalo, but dissappointed this time. Will not recommend it to anyone.

First movie ever that we walked out on!!!
Love Annette Benning but the content was disrespectful to all audiences. This is in my opinion.
