To prepare for her lead role as Faith, actress Diane Keaton used her then recent real-life break-up with actor Warren Beatty who she had recently co-starred in Reds (1981) with, for character motivation and understanding.

Honest drama about the breakup of a 15 year marriage that is brought to the screen with brute intensity by acting giants Finney and Keaton. Director Alan Parker arrives at some striking revelations about what keeps people together and what drives them apart. There are moments that are exceptionally moving and the supporting cast should also be commended for their work.
