The Arrangement 1999
The Arrangement ★★★ 1999 (R)
Jake (Keskhemnu) lives in Los Angeles. Luhann (James) is in New York. They're engaged until he admits to a one-night stand and invites her to experiment herself before the wedding. When she accepts, he is not pleased. Low-budget independent production is a bit obvious and slow moving in some respects, much more sophisticated in others. The details of everyday life are well observed and ring true. Editing is zippy and the characters are treated seriously. 90m/C DVD . Billie James, Keskhemnu; D: H.H. Cooper; W: H.H. Cooper; C: Douglas W. Shannon; M: Michael Bearden.
