Constantin Demeris: My family was very poor. My father was a stevedore. There were fourteen children, and we had to fight for our bread at the table. I was lucky; I was born with a talent for mathematics. I learned to quickly estimate the odds against me, and then I beat them. Some people encouraged me along the way. Others snubbed or cheated me, but in my heart there is an indelible record of each transaction. We all play God, but some of us are better-equipped for the role than others. You see, where most men go...

Interesting but meandering.
25 April 2000 | by (Charlottesville, VA) – See all my reviews

Interesting but meandering story of the parallel lives of:

1. A megalomaniac woman who uses her "assets" to ascend the ladder to stardom

2. A producer/housewife (Susan Sarandon) who desires nothing more than to have her husband present half of the time.

Her husband becomes involved with woman #1, and complications ensue. Somewhat predictable towards the end, but seeing an early performance (and brief nudity) by Sarandon makes it interesting and worthwhile throughout.

Film also features Luray Caverns, which happen to be located in my native Virginia.

** out of ****.
