An idiosyncratic story about – or at least, a look at – relationships among five women and one man living more or less next door to each other, very much in Manhattan. Oliver Platt was bit pudgy for my taste, but the five women were pitch-perfect: my fave was Rebecca Hall (again!) in the Charlotte Gainsbourg role, from ungainly to irresistible. I sort of wanted something to happen, but ended up settling for life’s little pleasures.
