Le Divorce | 2003 | PG-13 | - 5.4.4

Drama of manners about a California woman (Kate Hudson) who travels to Paris to be with her expectant sister (Naomi Watts) whose French painter husband is leaving her. The two women must learn to adjust to French ways and culture, while also trying to endure divorce proceedings and keep an extramarital affair a secret from the rest of family. Also with Jean-Marc Barr, Stockard Channing and Glenn Close. Directed by James Ivory. [1:57]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman kiss passionately and begin taking off each other's clothes. A man lies in bed in a robe and a woman opens her robe to reveal lingerie, she takes off her shoes, climbs into bed and they kiss. A man and a woman kiss in bed, and a man and a woman kiss in a few scenes. A man and a woman lie in bed together (he is bare-chested) and it is unclear whether there has been or will be sexual activity. A man and a woman wrestle in bed -- it is not clear if it is sexual. A woman unbuttons her jacket to reveal a corset and cleavage. A woman flirts with a man and men and women dance in a nightclub. A woman's top is off-the-shoulder, and a woman wears an outfit that reveals cleavage, her bare abdomen and back to the hip. A woman shops for lingerie and we see corsets and thongs. People talk about the sexual exploits of politicians. A woman talks about a man having "sex appeal," a man says to a woman "I desire you," and asks her if she will "become his mistress," a man talks about an herbal tea to drink before having sex, and a woman makes a remark about having sex with a particular man is like "fornicating with God."

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A pregnant woman lies unconscious and her wrists are very bloody (she has tried to commit suicide). We see a dead body in a dumpster, and we hear that a woman has been shot. A distraught man chases and threatens a group of people with a gun. A man yells at a woman, she hits him with her purse several times and yells at him. A man approaches a woman and acts in a threatening manner, and a woman yells at a man. A man talks about abortion as a political subject, and a woman considers having an abortion. People talk about deer hunting with dogs who chase the deer until it is exhausted and then kill it. A woman goes into labor and appears in pain. A movie on a TV shows a character that looks like a werewolf.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Marriage, family, divorce, infidelity, abortion, virginity, fascism, rationality, suicide, morality, cultural differences, St. Ursula, war mongers, the business of art collecting, May/December romances and sex.

MESSAGE - We should all go with life as it unfolds. We don't have a choice when it comes to love. In the end every hero becomes a bore.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
