A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year. Originally a stage play, the two are seen changing, years apart, always in the same room in different scenes. Each of them always appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through, often without both of them understanding what is going on. Written by

What a beautiful film this is. Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn are simply marvelous together. This is not just a romantic comedy, it's a tale about finding one's soul-mate and how we sometimes do the wrong thing in life but if we're lucky, we have a chance to redeem ourselves. Ellen Burstyn turns in a subtle, nuanced performance.She can act more with her eyes than most can with their entire bodies.What can we say about Alan Alda? He plays a very funny neurotic character who we get to like instantly. A really lovable guy. If you've ever wanted to see what chemistry between two movie characters is all about, see this film. A definite must-see.
