Starring: Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, Glenn Close
Everything doesn't sound sexier in French, as the tagline for Le Divorce claims. Don't get me wrong; I love foreign films. But I also appreciate subtitles for those films where I don't speak the language. Unfortuantely, I do not (yet) speak French. So when more than five minutes went by (multiple times) when no English was spoken and no subtitles given, I was a little disgruntled. I would have been willing to forgive this if I found the movie to be worth my time. Sadly, I did not.
The was little to no character development. The character's actions were not explained. And the worst part? That was that there was absolutely no resolution at all. There was a small climactic moment at the end, but nothing was ever resolved.
While it's true that French vs. American social customs and behaviors are observed in a story about an American visiting her Frenchman-wed sister in Paris, I wouldn't say that they're more than observed. They are just that observed. And if I were you, I don't know that I'd observe this movie. (Which by the way is difficult for me to say because I adore Kate Hudson - who doesn't?)
