Anatomy of a Love Seen is a romantic drama film released in 2014. The movie is directed by Marina Rice Bader, who also co-wrote the screenplay with C. Jay Cox. The movie's story revolves around two actresses, Zoe (Sharon Hinnendael) and Mal (Jill Evyn), who are playing the lead roles in a movie called "Young Nurses in Love." After Zoe and Mal have a physical attraction towards each other during the film shoot, they decide to take the relationship further and create a love scene for the movie.

The movie starts with Zoe and Mal rehearsing their love scene and their chemistry is instantly palpable. As the filming begins, they perform the scene to perfection, making it look very realistic. The crew seems to be pleased with the performance, and the director of the movie, Casey (Constance Brenneman), is impressed with their work.

However, after the scene is filmed, Zoe and Mal go their separate ways without any further communication. The film crew tries to contact them to re-shoot the scene, but they don't respond to any messages or calls. So, Casey decides to take the help of a documentary filmmaker, Joss (Marina Rice Bader), to understand what happened between the actresses and the reason behind their lack of willingness to re-shoot the scene.

The movie then takes us through a series of flashbacks that depict the development of Zoe and Mal's relationship - from their initial attraction, to their spontaneous decision to have sex, and finally to their decision to create the love scene for the movie. The flashbacks show that their attraction towards each other was not just physical, but emotional as well. They confide in each other, express their fears and insecurities, and develop a deep emotional connection.

However, their relationship takes a turn when Zoe decides to leave the movie halfway through filming. Mal is heartbroken and cannot continue without her. Despite her desire to stay, the crew convinces Zoe to leave, and this marks the end of their on-set romance.

As Joss interviews Zoe and Mal for the documentary, they try to understand why they never talked after the movie shoot. Zoe reveals that she developed feelings for Mal but was afraid to express them. She knew that Mal was straight and didn't want to ruin their on-set chemistry. So, she decided to keep quiet and leave rather than risk ruining Mal's straight orientation.

Mal, on the other hand, tells Joss that she always knew Zoe was attracted to her. Mal even had a secret crush on Zoe but was scared to act on it because she was concerned it would hurt Zoe's career. She also reveals that she missed Zoe but didn’t want to reach out because it might lead to more pain.

The movie ends with the re-shoot of the love scene, where Zoe and Mal finally confront each other and put their feelings into words. The scene is beautifully shot, and the chemistry between the two actresses is electric. The crew is satisfied with the performance, and the movie is finally complete.

Overall, Anatomy of a Love Seen is a beautifully crafted romantic drama that explores the complexities of human emotions and relationships. The movie's plot is simple, yet powerful, and the performances by the actors are raw and authentic. The movie showcases the delicate balance between professional and personal relationships and how one small decision can profoundly alter a person's life. It also highlights the importance of honesty and communication in nurturing any relationship, be it professional or personal.

Anatomy of a Love Seen is a 2014 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 21 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7.
