  The nearly constant use of a split screen in the perceptive, occasionally wrenching romantic drama "Conversations With Other Women" may be a distraction for some viewers. But the technique effectively highlights the divide between the man and woman whose verbal interaction and body language comprise the essence of the film. At a Manhattan wedding reception, a flirtatious encounter between guests played by Aaron Eckhart and Helena Bonham Carter develops into a full-blown pick-up attempt. All is not what it seems as increasingly intriguing revelations provide an unexpected context for the duo. Even during their most intimate moments, Eckhart is shot with one camera and Carter with another. The split-screen gimmick could have resulted in confusion, or worse. Instead, it enables director Hans Canosa and screenwriter Gabrielle Zevin to plumb the depths of the characters by showing glimpses of the past and of possible choices the man and woman might make in the immediate future. Bantering, bickering and bedeviling one another, Eckhart and Carter bring zest and pitch-perfect line-readings to the thoughtful, articulate script. These two exceptional actors are, ultimately, the best reason to check out "Conversations With Other Women," which resonates with the thrill of sexual tension, the promise of passion rewarded, and the agony of missed opportunities.
