sex, lies, and videotape
Two parts stands out in particular:
Once Ann confirms that John is...more
Graham (James Spader) seeks out his college friend John (Peter Gallagher, now of the OC). Graham videotapes women's sexual confessions, as he cannot connect with women directly. Ann (Andie MacDowell) is John's repressed wife. Two parts stands out in particular: Once Ann confirms that John is cheating on her, she changes out of the floaty white dress that she had been wearing into more form-fitting black clothing. To me, the change of dress represents Ann's transformation from repressed wife to assertive woman. The denouement of the film juxtaposes two frames of time: the videotaping itself and John's watching the videotape post-fact.
