An encounter between two people with a shared past and conflicting futures is played out on a split-image screen in this offbeat drama. An unnamed man (Aaron Eckhart) and woman (Helena Bonham Carter) are enjoying drinks and cigarettes in a hotel room after attending a wedding reception. At first, the two seem to be playing a flirtatious game, as he cheerfully but confidently advances toward her, and she seems at once attracted and put off by his bravado. Their pas de deux is shot and edited in split screen, with his image appearing in one half of the divided frame and hers appearing in the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I was hooked to the screen, to the film's sense of time and place and risk, to the intelligence of the talk and the intimations of pleasure and regret in Bonham Carter's performance."
‑ David Thomson, The New Republic
"The gimmick has its poetic moments, but the actors can't do much to make screenwriter Gabrielle Zevin's strategems for characters seem like real people."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Pining affair for mature art house fans."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"Engrossing from start to finish, Conversations with Other Women is a stimulating man/woman tussle about life, love and the whole damn thing. It's funny, unexpected, philosophical and romantic with a dash of melancholy thrown in for good measure"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Canosa demonstrates a playful and inventive filmmaking style with this insightful story of a relationship told from various perspectives"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"The film ultimately becomes too contrived to be anything but a fleeting diversion, but kudos to these emerging filmmakers for daring to make something a little bit different and, for the most part, intriguing."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"It can be tricky to watch both screens at once (Conversations With Other Women rewards multiple viewings), but it's invigorating to see a filmmaker exploring technique as metaphor."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Director Hans Canosa has made a split-screen experimental student film about two would-be lovers who connect after a wedding party in New York City."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Initially, the split screen seems like a quirky idea. But it gets old fast."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"A near-perfect amalgamation of cinematic technique and content."
‑ Shirley Sealy, Film Journal International
"The charm of Conversations With Other Women, a gimmicky but oddly moving two-character drama that flies in from who knows where, is its intelligent knowingness."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Conversations with Other Women feels like a one-act play stretched into a feature film and padded with those visual gimmicks."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"...although infused with a number of truthful moments and an awfully romantic atmosphere, director Hans Canosa's use of split-screen remains a distraction throughout the film's admittedly brisk running time."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"An intriguing deconstruction of a failed relationship, long past its point of no return."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"One of the most realistically romantic movies I've seen in a while. And I'm not easily impressed by what generally passes for "movie romance.""
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVD Clinic
