Our Score
Political ambition and sex addiction make uncomfortable bedfellows for a DA with his eye on the US Congress in this watchable drama. Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, The Conjuring) is a fine fit as the cleancut legal eagle whose dalliance with an escort girl gives way to a compulsion that threatens to destroy his career and marriage. Mora Stephens's second film may lack the erotic intensity of similarly themed movies like Fatal Attraction and Shame but it is intriguing, adult fare sustained by a cast of familiar faces - Game of Thrones star Lena Headey as Wilson's equally ambitious wife; Ray Winstone as a journo who sniffs a whiff of scandal; Richard Dreyfuss as a wily Washington fixer. But it's Wilson who remains centre stage, his cool and calm exterior belying the guilt and self-loathing bubbling within.

Summary

A married federal prosecutor stands poised on the brink of a bright future in politics. Everything starts to unravel when he hires an escort for the night. The experience ignites an uncontrollable sex addiction, and as his career blossoms, he faces a constant challenge hiding his actions from the media and his ambitious wife. Drama, starring Patrick Wilson, Lena Headey, Ray Winstone and Richard Dreyfuss.
