Drama, Thriller
A Toronto doctor (Julianne Moore), doubting the fidelity of her college professor husband (Liam Neeson), hires a call girl (Amanda Seyfried) to test him, and the young woman begins to insinuate herself into the couple's lives. If this Canadian drama hadn't been written by a woman (Erin Cressida Wilson, adapting Anne Fontaine's 2004 French feature Nathalie . . .), it would probably get rapped as male fantasy: its glossy portrayal of prostitution is all classy clothes and swank hotels, and its twisty plot ultimately turns into Fatal Attraction with the husbandly guilt ingeniously removed. But the male characters are really peripheral to the wife's messy relationship with the hooker, and as the aching spouse, Moore delivers what is for her an unusually sympathetic performance. Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter) directed.
