Product Overview

Judith Godreche (The Man In The Iron Mask, Ridicule) stars in The Disenchanted as Beth, a young woman "thrust into making adult decisions, while still clinging to her youth" (Apollo Guide). When her jealous boyfriend dares her to bed the ugliest man she can find, she accepts his challenge. What follows is an awakening of Beth's identity as she encounters three men: a young, inexperienced rich boy; a 40-year-old intelligent and handsome stranger; and her invalid mother's ex-lover and keeper. Beth's quest becomes more than a test of love; it is also one of courage and will. The Disenchanted is "an uncannily rich evocation of a headstrong young woman's turbulent inner life." (The New York Times)

ReviewSource Oakland Press
Review [Godreche portrays Beth with]...an endearing sensitivity and vulnerability but also the savvy and wisdom beyond her years...it is not often that the female perspective is dealt with in film, or with such subtlety.
