Really Good
17 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really like this for a lot of reasons. Jessica Biel is great, wish she would do more acting. And the actress that plays her mother is great too, she really makes you despise her. A couple of people mentioned that they could do without knowing Ambrose's sexual proclivities but I think it's important, for two reasons. One, it points out that many of those 'proclivities' are far more mainstream and less taboo than we realize. People get so worked up over anything that doesn't seem like conventional sex but it's just nerve endings people, get a grip. Secondly, Ambrose also points out an all too common dilemma that far more people than you'd imagine find themselves in; having sexual needs that are incompatible with the partner you love. These things are complicated, messy or sad but it doesn't diminish the talents you may have outside of the bedroom. It's real, all of it seems very real and wonderfully acted, can't wait to see what happens next.
