    Synopsis


    Closer
    Patrick Marber's acclaimed stage drama about the romantic interactions of four people has been given a reverent screen adaptation by director and producer Mike Nichols. Dan (Jude Law) is a writer in London who wants to finish a novel, but in the meantime supports himself by writing obituaries. One day he chances upon Alice (Natalie Portman), a beautiful young American expatriate, working as a stripper, when he sees her get hit by a car. Alice immediately falls for Dan, and gives him her love without reservation. Dan is initially enchanted with Alice, and returns her affection, but while she inspires him to write his novel (based on her life), her neediness begins to wear on him. Anna (Julia Roberts) is a photographer who is hired to take a portrait of Dan for the dust jacket of his book; Dan is attracted to her easy confidence, and while the two of them flirt, Anna soon (inadvertently through Dan's playful machinations) meets Larry (Clive Owen), a dermatologist, and marries him. Dan can't get Anna out of his mind even though she's married, and the two become lovers, but Dan is frustrated by the fact that Anna is reluctant to leave Larry for him. Patrick Marber wrote the screenplay for this adaptation of Closer; it was the playwright's first feature-film credit. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      One of the year's Best Movies

      I thought this was a vastly underrated movie and one of the best of that year. The characters are all jerks, and it's hardly a feel good movie, yet I left the theatre exhilirated due to the brilliance of what I had just witnessed. From the hauntingly beautiful Damien Rice song "The Blower's Daughter" that serves as the theme, to the clever and witty writing and the very sharp acting and directing, I thought this was a tour de force. It is a dark film, and may not be for everyone, but I loved it.

      Bought it because of its cast. Slow and a childish story. But it was only $7.99. Thought that was a bargain until I found it on Hulu. Oh well.

      A very different film with an excellent cast. Saw it in the theater and just purchased for $9.99 at Best Buy. Well worth the price.

      A twisted tale of love and loss and finding meaning in life, I really enjoyed it, the actors and actresses do a phenomenal job of portraying very real, emotional human beings.

      Last time I watched it I feel like it started out kind of slow. But it's totally worth it
