Serious Jest:  (Worth Watching)  This film’s audio/visual quality gives it the cheapy feel of a Lifetime movie, and I guess it’s fair to say that the movie’s target audience is women, but the man’s side is definitely explored, and Edgerton and Tunney give compelling enough performances to hold any adult viewer’s attention for an hour and a half…I say adult viewers, because this film is pretty dark.  The subject matter is not one that I would normally seek out, but I was captivated anyway.

By the way, Tunney is definitely a Girlfriend Experience actress.  That’s twice now I’ve fallen in love with her.

And on a final note, I was surprised at how forced and awkward Shepherd’s performance seemed…I had fond memories of her as an actress before this.
