Plot: Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable stay-at-home mom.

Runtime: 95 mins Release Date: 10 Dec 2013
Really a fine film, takes middle America to the place they all want to go and but don't talk about. Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor & Jessica St. Clair are these characters. Great watch after all the crap that has been out lately.Was really refreshing to see something made about people and their interactions be the story vs the story glosses past the interactions. The director & producers of this should be proud for turning out an honest, heart felt, well made product.Kathryn & Juno play off each other perfectly both able to transmit to the audience what they are <more>
feeling and thinking. Both of the super sexy in their own distinct way. Juno has this look that just melts anyone.See this flick, well worth the price of admission, will definitely make you ponder your own existence.
Strippers with hearts of gold . . . (by tadpole-596-918256)
. . . and confirmation that female sex workers are people just like everyone else. Since the days of KING OF KINGS and KLUTE, Hollywood has toed the party line. Strippers, go-go girls, hookers, exotic dancers, prostitutes, belly dancers, whores, street walkers, call girls, burlesque artists, Velvet Touchers, fan dancers, Hootchie Cootchie gals, taxi dancers, and any other females who entered the world of men must have something wrong with them. They had to be "scared straight" as was the case with Mary the Magdalen in KING OF KINGS silent version from the 1920s, in which <more>
Mary's hard work had earned her a three-zebra chariot complete with a hunky driver prior to her meeting with Jesus or live out sad and usually short existences as with Jane Fonda in Klute . AFTERNOON DELIGHT, written and directed by a woman Jill Soloway breaks from the mold in a wonderfully unpredictable and entertaining fashion. I do not want to say anything else more specific about AFTERNOON DELIGHT--get your hands on this flick tonight, and experience the wonder for yourself.
The movie captured like no other movie the situation for more than a few at this time and era we live in.The acting at times was superb. Kathryn Hahn drunk and relating to her girlfriends was astounding and needs to be given some recognition.Most overdue this type of scene but she played it like it really could be the case The inner angst that she was having to deal was terrificthe writing and the directing were extraordinaryThe pace of the movie was perfect yet was unpredictableThe supporting cast were great as well.It is exceptional to see a movie that is real.
First reviewer is missing the point (by bingowing100)
This is not a declaration of the paucity of American cinema, it's a fascinatingly observed study of our modern dilemmas - we have all the things that consumerist culture provides but not the things we need - a sense of meaning / intimacy / vitality. And while this comes with the movie its not the aim it sets out to highlight - to draw that conclusion is to plump for the obvious - within this framework is a fine fine director's eye - astute, understated, and then edited beautifully - in such a way as to catch all the subtleties of each little heavily laden moment, but managing to keep <more>
it ticking along at just the right pace and rhythm so that a film that invites, rather than grabbing you at the outset, gradually grows and grows through the teasing character development, the keen directorial eye and superb acting, until you are distinctly hooked. It manages to tell it's story and to reflect common themes of all our lives at the same time, and while the final resolution carries no great surprises, the skillful scripting manages to take the viewer with it right to this ending conclusion. Fine direction, excellent acting thank you guys and a likability that grows and grows...admirably. Watch this and let it do it's thing, leave your cynicism in the lobby and you will be well entertained.
A very simple story that reflects the thoughts of many people.Here we have Rachel living a comfortable life in need of nothing material. So she turns upon herself by looking inward and asking herself questions. And the questions she asks herself, her therapist, her friends, etc. she soon discovers she's not ready for the answers.In doing so she alienates he husband, her friends, and discovers her therapist is just as emotionally needy. So the message here is, 'Don't ask questions unless you are ready for an answer'.The stripper is just another reason for Rachel to seek answers <more>
to questions she doesn't realize are not 'needed' in her life.Fine acting by all, a good story, and a most worthwhile movie!
Rachel, a bored housewife and mother, is your typical upper class suburban woman. She has a beautiful house, a child, is involved with many different activities...but is bored. Rachel and her husband have not slept together in 6 months and of course she speaks to a therapist about it, who is always comparing her perfect lesbian relationship to hers. So they decide to go to a strip club one night and there she meets McKenna, a young girl, who she feels she needs to help. Rachel soon befriends and takes McKenna in. But over that course of time begins to discover new things about McKenna and <more>
herself. Of course as in every film, something bad happens and Rachel decides to no longer help McKenna.I've read bad reviews and some okay reviews. But in my opinion, more films like this one need to be made more often. You see the same stories play out all the time in mainstream movies and its indie films like this that give hope to cinema. Unfortunately films like these don't get seen as much. This film basically teaches you to appreciate the things in life that you already have, be grateful. Because it could be worse. The lead role of Rachel was just amazing, forgive me for not remembering the name as I write this. I've seen her mostly in comedic films, but this definitely showed her range as an actress. And Juno Temple, I love her. She was spectacular as always. She never seems to disappoint in anything she does. If your a big film buff like I am and enjoy simple yet superb story telling than I recommend for you to give this a watch.Especially if your a woman.
Artful contradictions make this film unique (by farrellblease)
Afternoon Delight is a subtly poignant film and is seemingly an accurate psychological portrayal of an array of believable personae and their reactions to the events that ensue through the story's development. The drama of this film is balanced with ample comedy relief. The comedic talent of Kathryn Hahn and the comedic value of the dialog by themselves make this movie well worth watching. The bonus is the slyly introduced dramatic depth which is both thought provoking and emotionally disturbing yet divulged in a relaxed style that allows the audience to form their own opinions regarding <more>
moral judgments. The contradictions of drama and comedy as well as depth and triviality make this film a unique viewing experience.
Afternoon Delight plays a bit like a Judd Apatow flick, from a female perspective. It's enjoyable, unexpectedly; after the first scene I sighed deeply expecting another film about about L.A. upper middle class problems. The film turned into something much more poignant. Despite some automated plot clichés, the film plays earnestly and honestly, following a married couple as they struggle to keep the fire going in their relationship - not a plot I would have driven a mile to watch unfold. However the film is mercifully very funny, with a good eye for improv and dialogue, and it aims for <more>
the heart. For the most part it's on target - and it tackles some complicated grey-area issues that we all face in relationships. Kathryn Hahn I'd seen and hardly noticed in Our Idiot Brother, but here she delivers an effective, multi dimensional performance. A strong film, made better by the fact that I kind of stumbled upon it without previous expectations.
Hahn shines in a funny and sublimely sharp domestic comedy of errors. (by george.schmidt)
AFTERNOON DELIGHT 2013 *** Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor, Jane Lynch, Jessica St. Clair, Michaela Watkins, Josh Stamberg, John Kapelos, Keegan Michael Key, Annie Mumolo, Suzy Nakamura, Noah Harpster, Eugene Cordero, Sawyer Ever. Funny and heart-felt domestic comedy about a listless LA housewife Hahn, finally being showcased as a comic lead to her full potential who finds herself in an unlikely friendship with a young exotic dancer Temple that she enlists as some sort of self-help project by inviting her to her family's home as a guest. Filmmaker Jill Soloway mixes the <more>
acerbic bitter with the sublime sweet with spot-on dialogue and a decent ensemble cast but wisely focuses on her odd coupling of her diverse costars that imbues humility and heartbreak.
