Strong actresses surround Adam Brody in this film constructed on sensitive rapport

Review B

As long as it keeps everyone suspended in intoxicating and inchoate yearning, writer-director Jonathan Kasdan's In the Land of Women gives off the wistful zing of a ruined-romance tune from the '60s songbook.

Carter Webb (Adam Brody), the hero, is a sensitive 26-year-old soft-porn writer in Los Angeles. He can supply double entendres and outlandish rationales for volcanic ids while on creative cruise control. Real amour throws him for a loop.

In the Land of Women (Warner Bros.) Starring Adam Brody, Meg Ryan, Kristen Stewart, Olympia Dukakis. Directed by Jonathan Kasdan. Rated PG-13. Time 98 minutes.
