James Van Der Beek , Ian Somerhalder and Shannyn Sossamon star in this scathingly insightful satire on life and love among the young and privileged. This is the domain of Camden College, a small, affluent liberal arts college somewhere in New England. With endless rounds of drug-alcohol-and-sex-drenched campus fetes, attended by sparsely-dressed Camden students, life is one big drug-induced trip. But human nature determines that in a highly imperfect world, the rules of attraction always apply and among the co-eds at Camden College, the first rule is: there are no rules.
depressing view of university love
- The Rules of Attraction review by CP Customer
All the characters in this movie are self-centred, screwed up and searching for love. The 'American Psycho' is indirectly referenced as a brother of one of the main characters. Interesting in terms of the philosophical discussion it will insight about everyone's university days but every scene is painful to watch as characters go from one sordid sexual encounter to the next. It is sexual coming of age story that I am glad mine in no way resembles.
