This movie was the recipe for an indie flick. It was pretty realistic (not necessarily normative), lots of nudity, good music, cool camera angles, actors you haven't seen much of or seen at all.
Told from a female's point of view, I would highly recommend this for any woman who is tired of the male point of view. Here you get a sexually free woman who DOESN'T get all emotional over a guy....until it's clear he feels the same way. Eric Balfour is extremely fit and the director goes to great lengths to show off his assets.
The scenes are at times uncomfortable-in a good way. The chemistry between Laila and David permeates through the screen and you really feel like the two are meeting for the first time, ect. The setting is summer in Toronto and at first I figured it was somewhere in the states...who would have thought there could be some really great scenes like the ones shown in this film.
Once again, this is true to the indie nature of films, so for anyone looking for an academy award nomination-this is the wrong film for you. Not to say the two didn't act well but it definitely isn't your mainstream sort of plotline.
