Review

Our Score
KC McKinnon's bestseller is the source for this lachrymose melodrama, in which Jacqueline Bisset proves once again that she lacks the intensity and range of contemporaries like Charlotte Rampling. Whether she's discovering that her husband of 25 years has been consistently cheating on her or realising that she's falling in love with the son of her first love (who is half her age), Bisset falls back on a dewy-eyed wistfulness that's out of keeping with her academic character's supposed literary eloquence. Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty) offers little but looks as Bisset's toyboy, but Valerie Harper brings some welcome edge as her sassy friend.

Summary

An English professor is horrified to discover her husband has been unfaithful to her throughout their 25-year marriage. She retreats to her home town to nurse her emotional wounds - where she unexpectedly falls for the handsome son of her first love. Romantic drama based on KC McKinnon's bestseller, starring Jacqueline Bisset, Eric Mabius and Valerie Harper.
