It’s hard to imagine a sexier nerdy foursome than the cheating couples in We Don’t Live Here Anymore. Laura Dern, Peter Krause, Mark Ruffalo, and Naomi Watts—whether grizzled with professorial beards or flush-faced by glasses of red wine—are almost relentlessly attractive, and viciously literate, as they deliver Larry Gross’s taut script. In a cloistered college town, the two couples hole up for a lonely summer, sneaking out behind each other’s backs. It’s the ultimate anti-date movie—peppered with awkward passes, sly glances, and deadly pauses. Most of it is painful to watch, but impossible to take your eyes off—as the four deliver some of the best performances of their careers. R; $27.95.
