Everybody's Got Somebody . . . Not Me

89 minutes 2012

A snobbish editor in her mid-30s has a passionate affair with a high school senior; she exposes the girl to fine dining and contemporary art, and they have great sex, but differences in age and life experience quickly derail the relationship. This Mexican drama may be simple as storytelling and risible in its leering fascination with lesbian sex, but it's so ravishing visually that you might be entranced anyway. Shooting in sparkling black-and-white, director Raul Fuentes lingers on faces and architecture to poetic effect, and the mood of poignant longing offsets the tony eroticism. Imagine French cine-poet Philippe Garrel directing a script by soft-core porn auteur Zalman King. In Spanish with subtitles.
