Christina Moore delivers the witty dialogue with panache when screenwriter and Mormon housewife Becky Jack meets dashing movie star Felix Callahan. Discussions of religion, friendship, and life are interspersed with daydreams about love and affection. Moore brings out Becky’s flat Utah intonation as she trades words with the worldly Felix. Where Becky is bouncy, Felix is stuffy. Still, their friendship grows. Can a Mormon wife maintain an innocent friendship with a suave actor? In a word: yes. So listeners should not expect steamy love scenes. Hale reminds listeners that not every male-female relationship revolves around sexual tension.
