This movie was originally a play, and it shows in the way it is dialogue driven and has very little action. This is a film that made me think. I laughed out loud a number of times, not because the movie is funny, but because the characters are so witty when they are talking to one another. Overall, I definitely enjoyed it and would recommend it. Natalie Portman was better than she has even been, but I'm not sure that her performance was worth an Oscar nomination. Still, it shows that she has potential to be a good, serious actress.
