PARK CITY, UTAH – I have seen one of the wisest films I can remember about love and human intimacy. It is a film of integrity and truth, acted fearlessly, written and directed with quiet, implacable skill. I will not forget it.

Moviegoers demand a little something in the way of formula, if only for reassurance, or as a road sign.
