ADDICTION

Year: 2004
Country: FINLAND
Language: Finnish
Run Time: 101 minutes

She has the perfect life: a loving husband; two adorable children; a job at which she excels; a gorgeous home and a body to match. So why does Jonna need to have spur-of-the-moment, anonymous sex with men she never wants to see again? As the film opens, Jonna needs an outlet, a diversion from her perfect life. But when she meets a young, indolent millionaire, she begins a full-blown, unsafe affair. When she?s assigned to promote an author who writes about sex, she starts to see an insidious pattern, but can?t help herself. As she misses work, struggles with her husband (who doesn?t have a clue that she?s in trouble), is threatened by her lover, and picks up the wrong man one very bad night, she knows she?s in a downward spiral. Can she climb out of her addiction and keep her wonderful life? Maybe. Maybe not.
