2000: I have not seen this movie since it first aired twelve or so years ago, but I remember it as having a powerful impact. I remember thinking it was better than the theatrical film "Sea of Love." Good performances by Armand Assante, Beverly D"Angelo and Blair Brown. Good plotting and dialog, too.
2008: Since originally commenting eight years ago, I have seen this title again. It holds up pretty well although it certainly is longish for one sitting. (It was originally shown in two parts on two different nights.) The plot is involved, but for those not suffering from a short attention span, the multiple story lines are intriguing especially when they fold on each other.
Especially amusing now are the hair and clothes that date the movie, but the performances hold up. I say this notwithstanding the appearance of a fourteen-year-old actor named Ben Affleck. This movie could be culled for clips to be used in a "Before they Were Stars" special. The cast includes Affleck, Forest Whitaker, and Canadian actor/director Sarah Polley (acting: "My Life Without Me," "John Adams," "The Sweet Hereafter"; directing: "Away From Her," etc.). But Sarah was only about eight and had maybe ten short lines at a maximum.
