Unfltrd Review: Movie ~ 28 Hotel Rooms
Written and Directed By: Matt Ross
Starring: Marin Ireland and Chris Messina
In a word: Gritty
Happened upon this little gem on Netflix. I’m not going to sugar coat this one people: this film is hot and heavy. I mean…whew doggie. This was a raw examination of a love affair lived out within the suffocating confines of twenty-eight hotel rooms. SPOILER ALERT: there’s a lot of sex.
This film explores the rigorous honesty it takes to maintain a thriving relationship. It’s an honest film with impeccable performances from Ireland and Messina. The setting is genius, though the scenery changes you are so engaged it’s like watching a staged piece. In fact, I would love to see this played out on stage. The dialogue is sharp, emotional, and gritty as fuck…
