A 30-something photographer is seduced by a 14-year-old girl via online chat room. He brings her to his house for some drinks (alcoholic ones no less) and finds himself drugged, tied to a chair and bombard with dull-sarcasm and soapbox lecturing from his would-be teen victim. She accuses him of being a child-molester (who would have thought?) and a possible murder while threatening to castrate him, or at least bore him senseless with pretentious dialogue and gaping plot-holes. In the end, it's the audience that suffers.
This is the movie I watch again whenever Michigan winters begin to drag me down. The scenery makes you want to book that trip to Tuscany -- Now! Loved the book, and since I never expected the movie to follow the book, was plesantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie. Fits within my personal genre of favorite movies I call life-affirming.
