Helen Mirren and Patricia Hodge were both tested for the role of Emma. Sam Spiegel eventually chose Hodge because Mirren's "butt was too big for the part". See more »

Quotes

Robert: [after his wife tells him that she's been having an affair with his best friend] Where does it take place? Must be a bit awkward. I mean we've got two kids, he's got two kids not to mention a wife.

Excellent Psychological Drama
20 May 2000 | by (Atlantic City, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a really fine movie with excellent characterizations. I've never seen Patricia Hodge in anything else but in this movie she's the equal of Irons and Kingsley. It's interesting how the movie starts with the very emotional end works it's way back to the innocuous beginnings.
