Most of the film takes place in Cin's apartment, where the lovemaking is filmed with a physical frankness. The evolving relationship is intercut with comments by Josh, Cin and their acquaintances.
Wenham and Porter have good screen chemistry and create engaging characterizations, but the script by writer/director Jonathan Teplitzky is light but slight and leads to a predictable conclusion. Though initially amusing, “Better” seems drawn out even at less than 90 minutes. Starring David Wenham and Susie Porter. Directed and written by Jonathan Teplitzky. Produced by Bruna Papandrea and Frank Cox. An IDP release. Comedy. Not yet rated. Running time: 84 min
