THE MAID'S ROOM is a psychological thriller that explores the complex relationships between truth and justice, hubris and power, wealth and fear. Release Date: Matters did take a predictable course but could I predict the conclusion, not. What Matters Most () on IMDb: Movies, TV, Celebs, and more for a bride and forces him to dump her and date Lydia Sharp (played by Shonda Farr). . Great for a Made-for-TV movie, and fairly decent portrayal of Texas life only skin shown are the shirtless H.S. basketball players as they banter in the locker room. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew. Written by Fox Searchlight .
Uma Thurman is already 35, but still looks ravishing on screen, despite a few visible wrinkles.
Prime is a bittersweet tale, and I find it set in realism. Gone are the overplayed lovey-dovey moments, and I welcome the fact that with every relationship there are issues, and the major ones are the obstacles which determine if the relationship can survive, or not.

As a director Younger does an adequate job but he could have made the script tighter as 'Prime' does drag in the middle only to pick up in the end.

The dialogues are quite interesting and the therapy sessions are fun to watch but a few of the jokes fall flat. Meryl Streep does a good enough job but she's not at her best and why are her eyes always reddish?
Bryan Greenberg holds his own in a film with two established actresses. But, 'Prime' belongs to Uma Thurman all the way.
She is simply terrific as the vulnerable Rafi and her transformation up till the end is effectively portrayed.
On the whole, 'Prime' is a decent film with good performances.
Room At The Top was something that still couldn't be made in America because of the Code, but at least it was shown here. Simone Signoret got one of those Oscars, for Best Actress in It's a very subtle part she undertakes, in fact she's not the main character, Harvey is.
Still when she's on the screen even Harvey's flashier character of Joe Lampton takes a back seat. Signoret is just fabulous as the older and still attractive woman, trapped in a loveless marriage will touch you dearly. She's one of the most beautiful and tragic figures ever done on screen.

Harvey was up for Best Actor, but he and the film itself were running in the year of Ben-Hur. He and the picture itself lost to Charlton Heston and the noble character he created on screen. Room At The Top with its brutally frank talk of sex mixed with ambition has become a classic and Joe Lampton became Laurence Harvey's signature role. It's an enduring classic of the British, nay the English language cinema and should not be missed.

Harvey is his usual dour self and the industrial settings of urban England add to the melancholy mood of the film.
