Single and middle-aged, beautiful Irene (Margarita Buy) is wholly devoted to her job as an inspector of luxury hotels. Constantly on the road, she indulges in expensive pleasures at impeccable resorts, but always incognito and alone, soon escaping to the next exotic destination with her checklist and laptop in tow. When her best friend and ex, Andrea (Stefano Accorsi), who has always been a source of emotional support, suddenly becomes unavailable, Irene is thrown into a deep existential crisis. "Luxury is a form of deceit," she is told by a fellow traveller in the fog of a steam room, and thus begins Irene's quest to bring more meaning into her life.

Alex V (de) wrote: Tony Kaye's talkin' bout the issues! Issues other than the ones he touched on about a decade ago, involving a certain Oscar-nominated curb-stomping skinhead. He uses very similar stark, black-and-white imagery here for a twofold purpose: to demonstrate the illusion that abortion is a black and white issue, when it fact it is a series of layered gray areas. It is also used as a layer of grit spread on top of the film, to make the often shocking imagery seem almost more real. This is not stacked on either side of the heated abortion argument. Instead, it shows both extremes at the barest and ugliest. Kaye juxtaposes images and scenes of real-life abortions with those of the OB-GYNs who were murdered by extreme pro-life advocates. Both are equally horrific to behold. What's most shocking is how timely the whole thing feels, despite the fact that Kaye filmed most of his footage over a decade ago. It's chilling, eye-opening, and brutally educational, albeit quite long.

The latter is its most forced and least convincing element. Nonetheless, it is an entertaining film and features a strong cast of legendary Aussie actors.
Jonah M (es) wrote: Watch it. In my opinion i really enjoyed this movie. A lot of people get it mistaken for a horror flick, which it isn't. Hugh Jackman Sank into the role, killing it like usual. Kate Beckinsale on the other hand, wasn't great. Her acting wasn't on point, and was just plain sloppy. I would watch this movie. It's never gonna be your favorite or incredible! But I've seen this movie a couple times, and it is very entertaining.
