Afternoon Delight (18)

Comedy, Drama

Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable stay-at-home mom. Frustrated with the realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and career that's gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper she adopts as her live-in nanny.

The critical consensus

Six Feet Under scribe Jill Soloway offers a wry perspective on married life as Temple's stripper-with-a-heart is lobbed into this domestic yarn like a firecracker in an arms cache.

***(*)(*)Anna Smith, Empire Online, 24/03/2014

Soloway spikes the clichés with refreshingly rude humour, steadily darkens the mood and gets gold from her lead.

***(*)(*)Kevin Harley, Total Film, 24/03/2014

Diverting and well played, trips the light fantastic of character likability.

***(*)(*)Cormac O'Brien, Little White Lies, 27/03/2014

Also delves fearlessly into raw, intimate and uncomfortable areas that more conventional comedies would avoid like the plague.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, 27/03/2014

Jill Soloway handles her tale of sexual mores with confidence and sympathy.
