Yes 2004
The lovers are identified only as "He" and "She." "She" is married to Anthony (Sam Neill, The Piano), a politician who prides himself on his "control," and their marriage must be among the chilliest in the long history of chilly movie marriages; we barely see them together, and when we do, they are either silent or unflinchingly hostile. "He" was trained as a doctor in Beirut, but fled the political strife there and works as a chef, until he loses his job for getting in fights with nativist co-workers. She was born in Belfast, a point which she keeps repeating to establish her political bona fides, out of guilt for her own privileged status as a wealthy American, although she avoids her dying Irish aunt, who is a too-powerful reminder of her past and the political strife that she has escaped. Allen and Abkarian meet, sparks fly, sex is had, and then there are obstacles and cultural complications.
