Julianne Moore stars in this (uncredited) remake of the erotic thriller Nathalie, playing a Toronto gynaecologist who fears that hunky lecturer husband Liam Neeson is playing away.
She conceives the frankly bizarre idea of hiring call-girl Amanda Seyfried to seduce him and thus secure evidence of what she believes to be his philandering ways, but the plan goes awry as the two women discover that they are more attracted to each other. The whiff of cheesiness coming off this would be neither here nor there if you didn't know it was directed by Atom Egoyan, whose work, despite occasional mis-steps (the recent Adoration), has generally aspired to a high moral and narrative complexity. There are interesting scenes here, but they are subordinate to an atmosphere of sexual trespass more suited to the likes of Adrian Lyne.
