Rafi’s therapist, Dr. Lisa Metzger, who is working to help Rafi overcome her fears of intimacy, finds out that Rafi’s new lover is–unfortunately for Lisa–her only son, David. Both David and Rafi must contend with their 14-year age gap, vastly different backgrounds and the demands of David’s traditional mother. Despite their intense attraction, the charmed couple soon realizes that vastly different ages and backgrounds create much conflict. A Jewish hip-hop lover and closet painter who still lives with his grandparents, David has little in common with Rafi–a non-practicing Catholic from a wealthy, broken family who travels in the sophisticated, high-end world of fashion.
Plot: A career driven professional from Manhattan is wooed by a young painter, who also happens to be the son of her psychoanalyst.

Really a “Chick Flick”?
I was initially reluctant to watch this film but my girlfriend wanted to check it out. After seeing it I must admit that the film did surpass my expectations – primarily since I felt that it was not really a “chick-flick” per se. The film tends to center around the guy 100% of the time. Call it a “guy-flick” from a woman’s perspective. While I’m not at all a Meryl Streep fan, I felt that she carried the movie for the time that she was on the screen. Uma Thurman can’t help but be the stunningly beautiful Uma Thurman that she always is. Without spoiling anything, I think that the ending was perfectly real compared to most romantic comedies that have been released in the past. This film was one of the more pleasant surprises for me this year. At the very least it will make for a great DVD rental if you’re a guy who is as reluctant to see it as I was originally.
Feels like real life on screen
I happened to catch the second half on HBO one night. I saw the entire movie a few nights later. I could easily watch it through again — I was really drawn into the movie. I had to look it up on IMDb just because I was thinking about it so much.
There’s a lot of negative reviews here, much more than the movie deserves. Movies are like people — some you despise, many leave you indifferent, and some just really *click*. My roommate came back from “Saw III” hyper and proclaiming it the “BEST movie EVER!!!” — I can guarantee you he wouldn’t care for this. “Prime” also doesn’t have any of the typical emotional manipulations found in your average rom-com. It makes do with much subtler if still dramatic material. For example: the meeting between Rafi and David is low-key, slightly awkward, nothing like, say, the Ferris wheel scene in “The Notebook”. Ryan Gosling threatening suicide to get a date is certainly entertaining, but it also leaves me slightly detached, too aware this is a story for my viewing pleasure.
“Prime” is the anti-“Grease”. There’s nothing STYLIZED about it; no fairy-tale ending. If you can do with such accoutrements you’ll be sucked in, especially if you can relate to the very upper-middle-class New York viewpoint that permeates it. Another reviewer was quite insightful in comparing it to “Annie Hall”.
As for the relentless disparagement of Bryan Greenberg in the male lead: you’ve got to be kidding me!!!! He doesn’t play the role the way, say, a young Al Pacino would play it. His persona is understated, relaxed almost to the point of passivity, slightly unsure, sarcastic and naive and vulnerable all at once. Completely believable as a 23-year-old who would appeal to and be attracted to a 37-yr-old divorcée. A more typical male lead his age wouldn’t be dating Uma Thurman, he’d be charming Natalie Portman or Jessica Alba. Take the scene where he’s trying to connect with the stoic doorman — I totally cracked up and at the same time couldn’t help but admire how true-to-life it felt. Everything about that scene bespoke an upper-middle-class 20-something living with his grandparents and lacking direction.
Not to mention that the intimacy between Rafi and David felt so natural that I felt convinced that Uma and Bryan had something off-screen during filming. The way they looked at each other, shared each other’s space… the lust didn’t seem acted, I’ll put it that way.
To Ben Younger: despite all the people out there who don’t get it, there are some of us who do. You really did an amazing job, and I doubt I’ll ever forget “Bubbe” knocking herself with that frying pan… Lol.
