Friday, September 6, 2013
Directed by Anne Fontaine
Written by Christopher Hampton, based on the novel by Doris Lessing
A gripping tale of love, lust, and the power of friendship, Adore charts the unconventional and passionate affairs embarked upon by two lifelong friends, Lil and Roz, who fall in love with each other’s sons. Afraid of facing the ire and judgment of their insular seaside community, they continue the relationships in secret over the years.Once the affairs are discovered, the revelation threatens to tear apart their lives and those of the young men, who must eventually choose between following a well-worn path or their true desires.
Adapted from a Doris Lessing novel by Christopher Hampton and directed by Anne Fontaine, Adore (formerly Two Mothers) boasts a truly impressive international pedigree. Beautifully acted and meticulously composed, it features riveting performances by Naomi Watts and Robin Wright, whose fearless engagement with both the physical and psychological components of the story is breathtaking. Under the precise gaze of Fontaine’s camera, Adore radiates with sweltering sensuality while wading into the dark waters of forbidden love.
