Guinevere | Chicago Reader

Guinevere

The sex scenes in this romantic anticomedy—about an exploitive man seen through the eyes of one of his conquests—often invite us to share the point of view of the man, a faltering 50ish photographer (Stephen Rea), as he tries to capture the youth of the woman (Sarah Polley) on film and in bed. (One scene ends as he's about to make her come, a bit of patronizingly disingenuous discretion.) Writer-director Audrey Wells had the nerve to pose hard questions about an intriguingly unhealthy relationship, but partly because the seducer's technique is methodical—as a former conquest explains to the naive heroine—the movie's answers are too easy.
