Plot Summary: New York writer and opera addict Allegra (Elizabeth Reaser, "The Family Stone") loves her girlfriend Samantha (Julianne Nicholson, "Kinsey"), but can't commit. When Samantha leaves her, Allegra rebounds with handsome philosophy professor Phillip (Justin Kirk, "Angels in America") as well as the irresistibly beautiful, recently single Grace (Gretchen Mol, "The Notorious Bettie Page"). Allegra juggles secret relationships with both of them, never suspecting that Philip and Grace have a connection of their own. With a sophisticated blend of humor and irony, this screwball sex comedy twists and turns with all the drama of classic Puccini.
