Thought-provoking drama about an iconoclastic graduate art student (Rachel Weisz) who uses the manipulating palette knife of suggestion to transform the appearance and personality of her boyfriend (Paul Rudd), proving that seduction is an art. Director Neil LaBute subverts the Pygmalion story, employing cerebral dialogue, pitch-black wit and a disturbingly manipulative narrative to explore the subjectivity of perception and society's fascination with surface appearances. Harrowing depiction of deceitful activities, implied sexual situations and much rough language and vulgarities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
