“Notes On A Scandal” (Richard Eyre, USA 2006)

notes-on-a-scandal

excellent dialogues + music
weakest: message + humor

Cleverly orchestrated four-generational love relationship, in which a woman in her sixties who is still looking for her true (lesbian) love falls for a young married mother of two who has an affair with a teenage boy. The emotional stability of the two male characters (the 15-year old boy and the older husband) contrasts with the vulnerability of the two female leads.
