Conversations With Other Women

There are two sides to every love story

A fresh treatment invigorates Conversations With Other Women’s potentially conventional subject. A man and a woman (Aaron Eckhart and Helena Bonham Carter) meet at a wedding reception. They begin some sharp comic banter with the effervescence of a good champagne. She jokes that she was the seventh choice for bridesmaid, called only after one of the choices was unable to come. The woman has flown in from London for the wedding and will leave the next day. As the couple (their names are never given) flirts, their previous connection is gradually revealed. Hans Canosa, making his feature directorial debut, gives Conversations a unique split-screen style. Two cameras were used throughout the shoot for each scene and so a character’s reaction is shown simultaneously to what the other says. This enhances the emotional effect of the dialogue and is particularly effective when the conversations turns more serious, probing the characters’ lost opportunities and regrets. Though other characters, including their younger selves, appear, the focus is continually on the couple. The film would not be as successful without the impressive range Bonham Carter and Eckhart give their characters. Bonham Carter is captivating in a role very different from the period heroines that first brought her notice. Screenwriter Gabrielle Zevin skillfully changes the tone of the dialogue and, by only gradually revealing details of the couple’s past and present, keeps these ‘Conversations’ continually intriguing. – Ed Scheid, Box Office Magazine
