This early and somewhat overlooked film by director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids are All Right) has at its centre a magnetic performance by Frances McDormand as a hedonistic music producer. Her estranged and uptight son Sam (Christian Bale) returns to his mother’s bohemian lair in the Hollywood hills with his sheltered fiancée Alex (Kate Beckinsale). They plan to stay in the empty house while he takes up his new job and she works on her PhD. But his mother is unexpectedly in residence, finishing an overdue album with a British pop group, whose young lead singer is her new lover. The conservative young couple are soon being pulled apart by the various temptations of their new situation.
