Korean filmmaker Gina Kim directed this erotic drama about a woman's dangerous response to her husband's fertility issues. The Departed's Vera Farmiga stars as Sophie, an American woman married to Korean-American Andrew (David McInnis). When Andrew's inability to impregnate Sophie leads him to attempt suicide, Sophie seeks the help of a fertility clinic, but is turned away. Desperate to save her marriage, she begins paying Korean immigrant Jihah (Ha Jung-woo) for sex, in hopes that she'll become pregnant and Andrew will be none the wiser. As on might expect, though, the relationship between Sophie and Jihah evolves into something more than either bargained for. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
A fairly good erotic drama that I think I understand the issues the hired hand (sperm-donor)must have been feeling.In a sense one can view this as a guy flick,& somewhere in the plot there seems to be a message in relation to the way in which Sophie was using the hired hand (illegal immigrant)as a sex machine.This is one example of the thin line between business & pleasure.Worth the 3 stars.
I loved this story so sparely told, leaving a lot for the viewer to fill in the blanks. The acting is superb, especially with Vera Farmiga. She is so beautiful and subtle. I especially loved the ending where the viewer fills in what probably happened. There were some parts I didn't understand,but that was minimal to the basic story.
