Richard Gere and Winona Ryder are the incredibly unlikely couple in this unbelievable romance. He's the suave restaurateur who can have any babe he wants, she's the quirky hat designer half his age who also happens to be dying. Quite why the two fall for each other is never truly explored, and the whole thing is given a slightly creepy twist when the audience learns that he actually once had a thing for her mother. Directed like a Dairy Milk advert by Joan Chen (best known for appearing in front of the camera in Twin Peaks and The Last Emperor), this is only worth enduring for some nice picture-postcard scenes of Manhattan and for proof that the acting talent Winona Ryder displayed at the beginning of her career, in films such as Heathers, is now being wasted.


An ageing playboy embarks on a casual fling with a much younger woman, but tells her not to expect it to develop into a lasting relationship. However, the discovery that she is terminally ill forces him to reassess his feelings for her and his irresponsible outlook on life. Romantic drama, starring Richard Gere, Winona Ryder, Anthony LaPaglia and Elaine Stritch.
