A lot more storyBy michell944 (5 reviews) from Leeds , 27 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I spent a good portion of the film wandering if Sofia Coppola had watched this pre-Lost In Translation. The set-up is certainly similar; two women (instead of a guy and a girl) meet up in a hotel and impact upon each others lives. This isn't as powerful as LIT but it does move a bit quicker and there's more story to the story. Good acting from the two leads heading a small cast. Enjoyable film!

The Business of StrangersBy Theatregoer (2 reviews) from Liss , 09 Apr 2008I have never walked out of a Theatre or failed to watch the end of a film in my life (except Nightmare on Elm Street that is). BUT I couldn't stick at this film to the end.
There wasn't even the slightest hint that this was going anwhere. Did it ?
I was attracted to the film by Stockard Channing - but even she failed to keep me watching.
EngrossingBy a customer from Surrey , 09 Jan 2008Interest was kept going all the way to the end. Excellent performances from the three principal actors, and Stockard Channing never makes a bad film in my opinion. There are loose ends and questions at the end of the film, true but its a very good watch.
Good, but expecting a lot betterBy a customer from NE England , 03 Dec 2007Perhaps it was just me, but when I saw the two actresses starring in this film I was expecting it to be great. It wasn't, it was good though and I'm glad I watched it. Stockard Channing is the best part of the film as per usual, but Julia Stiles didn't seem to be as good as expected but perhaps that was the material or direction. It just seemed a little confined, you never get to leave the hotel once they get there and you don't know enough about the characters to really care about them. They do show elements of their personality through the movie, but in very particular and confined ways - nobody is that one dimensional and considering the whole story is based on character elements and dialog, its a problem. I was really expecting more, glad I watched but its not of movie I'll ever watch again.
