Adore | 2013 | Naomi Watts, Robin Wright

Naomi Watts, Robin Wright, Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville star in director Anne Fontaine’s adaptation of a Doris Lessing novella. In an isolated small town on the beautiful east coast of Australia, two women in their forties, widowed Lil (Watts) and married Roz (Wright), have been neighbours and best friends since childhood.

One summer’s day, they are lying on the beach admiring their sons as they surf, but it’s not long before this innocent admiration unexpectedly changes into something else. When Roz’s husband Harold (Ben Mendelsohn) takes a job in Sydney, she and her son Tom (Frecheville) decide to stay behind. With Harold away in the city, a dramatic new dynamic develops when Roz begins an affair with Lil’s son, Ian (Samuel). Tom discovers this and, initially in revenge, starts a relationship with Lil. The four of them realise they are perfectly comfortable with this new set-up. But their relationships cannot stay hidden for long, and the ensuing complications lead to confrontations and startling outcomes.
