Article Excerpt:

Tribeca coverage continues withDianaon 5 to 7 with Anton Yelchin & Glenn Close

Based on the imaginings of an out-of-touch,middle-aged writer-director,5 to 7is about a 24 year-old "writer"(Anton Yelchin) who becomes involved with the 33 year-old wife of a French diplomat (Berenice Marlohe).Brian lives in Manhattan,presumedly on his parents' dime (Glenn Close and Frank Langella,both painfully misused),and attempts to write,his creative juices facilitated by posting a multitude of rejection letters on his wall and playing lonely man wiffleball in his apartment.Arielle also lives in Manhattan  and is oh so very "French"-- husband,two kids,posh neighborhood,and ability to balance high heels with a well-fitting dress.

Spotting Arielle in front of the St.Regis,Brian pursues her through quips that sound more like early drafts of "wit"rather than the finished product (think Woody Allen without the neurotic charm).She tosses words back at him that are meant to signify mutual attraction.When they do end up in a hotel room together (after she hands him the key),there is zip chemistry between the pair,cringingly highlighted all-the-more when Arielle tells Brian that he is a natural lover and asks whether his other lovers had told him that.That's the crux of the problem with this film - we are told things consistently through voiceover and character iteration (Brian loves Arielle,Arielle loves Brian,Brian's mother can see that they love each other),but we're rarelyshownanything substantial enough to back up these assertions.[More...]
