Film Reviews by Adam Long

Now in Theaters:

 One Fine Morning (***) Lea Seydoux is a single mother finding herself drawn into an affair while simultaneously caring for her ailing father. Filmmaker Mia Hansen Love effectively paints a portrait of a woman whose needs and wants are at odds with what she seems to receive from the universe in which she inhabits. A quiet but affecting film.
