Martine, an artist from New York, arrives in Los Angeles to work on her film. She is staying with friends of a friend, Julie, her husband Peter, Julieís teenage daughter Kolt, and their young son. From the day that Martine walks into the lives of this open-minded, relaxed California family, everything is subtly set off balance. Peter is helping Martine complete the sound design on her art film and they collaborate closely together, working in the studio off the pool house where Martine is staying. They develop a connection that is rare for Peter and necessary for Martine to finish her movie but which begins to veer away from professional terrain. An attraction is also brewing between Martine and Davidís assistant, who sixteen-year-old Kolt is crushing on as well. Meanwhile, Julie, a therapist who prides herself on being professional and together, is fending off the projective impulses of one of her patients, a screenwriter who can talk his way into anything. Each character experiences a surge of desire catalyzed by Martineís arrival, and everyone is forced to confront the new landscape that emerges in her wake.

The Independent Spirit Awards has a special place in the Awards Season. The nominations are the unoffficial start of Awards Season, but the actual awards aren't given out until Oscar weekend, so they are the beginning at the end of Awards Season. They also help out a lot of limited releases that would otherwise not get enough buzz, although they are not so good at predicting Oscar wins. This year, two films tied for most nominations, Moonrise Kingdom and The Silver Linings Playbook, both of which earned five nominations. They weren't the only films to earn multiple nominations though.

It's a slower week for limited releases, but there are a couple that are earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. Holy Motors is one of them, but while it should do well in art house theaters, its chances at mainstream success is a lot more limited. The Sessions reviews are even better and it has a lot more mainstream appeal. It is never easy for a limited release, but of all of the film's on this week's list, this one has the best shot at the box office.
