MPAA Rating:

A trio of lonely, middle-aged American women finds their growing disillusionment with stateside men leading them to seek emotional comfort and sexual gratification in the arms of young Haitian man in Time Out director Laurent Cantet’s emotionally incisive adaptation of Haitian-Canadian author Dany Laferrière’s acclaimed short stories. Competing for the attentions of beautiful young Haitian native Legba are 55-year-old Wellesley professor Ellen, sexually frustrated Canadian factory worker Sue, and fortysomething Georgia blonde Brenda. The Hotel Petite Anse is a haven for older women seeking the companionship of younger men, and doyenne Ellen has come to establish herself as something of the queen bee of the popular island establishment. Despite the constant threat of Baby Doc Duvalier’s thuggish henchmen, these lonely women risk their livelihoods to bask under the sun and forget the troubles of their daily lives as the line between exploiter and exploited becomes increasingly blurred.
