Rachel Ward is married to a lumber
worker. The two of them live way out of town, and her husbands kid
brother is always around. Rachel feels noting exciting ever happens in
her life, or ever will happen to her. Even when her brother-in-law
moves in with them, and her husband allows them to have sex, things
are no better. Then she meets a dashing new barman, and becomes
obsessed. Her husband doesn't want to lose her, but also does not want
to do anything that will make her hate him, and tries to deal with her
obsession as best he can, even when she becomes the focus of town
comments in yellow:
Definitely not my kind of movie.
1. Moves at a snail's pace
2. Is well-intentioned, but boring.
3. Includes completely unrealistic behavior because it is necessary to the plot.
On the other hand, the photography is lush, and the setting is the prettiest picture postcard small town you'll ever see.
