Okay, while the idea of a couple in crisis turning to hitting strip clubs to get some heat back in their relationship sounds like advice given a decade ago in Cosmo, it serves as the backdrop for "Afternoon Delight" and you know what? It works, and the first trailer is here to show you some skin and give a tease of what you'll be getting later this year.

Afternoon Delight

Okay, while the idea of a couple in crisis turning to hitting strip clubs to get some heat back in their relationship sounds like advice given a decade ago in Cosmo, it serves as the backdrop for "Afternoon Delight" and you know what? It works, and the first trailer is here to show you some skin and give a tease of what you'll be getting later this year.

Starring Juno Temple and the excellent Kathryn Hahn (as we noted in our review, quoted in the trailer too), the film follows Rachel (Hahn), a woman in the midst of a marital crisis, who somehow winds up inviting McKenna (Temple), a stripper with a troubled past to live at her home while she gets back on her feet. And while McKenna gains respectable work as Rachel's nanny, once it's uncovered she's a hooker too, things take a bit of a turn toward the dark. And overall, as we summed up in our B+ review, the movie falls "somewhere between a comedy and drama [and] is about the importance of sex in keeping a relationship healthy and the dangers of allowing yourself to get stuck in a rut."

But don't just take our word for it, as writer and helmer Jill Soloway picked up the Directing Award, Dramatic at Sundance in January. "Afternoon Delight" opens on August 30th. Watch below.
