My Old Addiction

Jet Lag (Decalage Horaire)


(out of 5)

The characters are what makes this one really zing, especially since the story is nothing new: two strangers meet in an airport, spend a day together and go off to a new life changed and enriched.  is a tired businessman traveling between jobs who crosses paths with a beauty expert (, a born expert on the subject) on the run from her abusive boyfriend (). When their planes are delayed due to weather conditions, he takes pity on her and offers to share his hotel room with her (respectfully of course), leading to an evening of two very different personalities having some pretty heady collisions. Nothing unexpected happens, but the roles are rich and both the actors bring them to life so vividly that you’ll have a great time watching it happen.
