Closer – Review


This is the story of four strangers whose lives become inextricably linked.
Dan (Law) becomes obsessed with photographer Anna (Roberts) during a
photo shoot for the cover of his new book. She turns him down when she
discovers he has a girlfriend (Portman).
Anna then meets and falls for Larry (Clive Owen), a dermatologist. They
get married but then she embarks on a secret affair with Dan, after all.


This is a wonderful ensemble comedy drama about modern day
relationships, adapted by Patrick Marber from his own acclaimed stage
It’s extremely well written, very witty and insightful. All four cast
members are magnificent. This is Jude Law’s best performance since The
Talented Mr Ripley while Clive Owen finally shows that he can play more
than just the silent, moody type.
Natalie Portman also proves she can give lap dancers a run for their
money on a dance pole. It’s hysterical, it’s dark and definitely worth

CLOSER opens on January 14th 2005
