Storyline

Having recently turned fifty, Marion feels that she has led a so far blessed life. The well-respected Dean of Philosophy at a women's college, she is currently on sabbatical to write her latest book. Although her first husband Sam died tragically fourteen years ago from a mixture of alcohol and pills, she has recently remarried to Ken, who, married at the time, pursued her, while Ken's writer friend, Larry, also professed his love for her. She has a good relationship with her step-daughter Laura, seemingly better than Laura has with either Ken or Laura's own volatile mother, Kathy. Between her and her brother Paul, Marion always had the attention of their academic father. And she and Ken have a wide circle of friends with who they regularly and willingly socialize.

Trivia

Reportedly, writer-director Woody Allen changed his mind several times about the movie's opening shot. See more »

Goofs

Whilst it is true that the tune of Gymnopédie No. 1 is played at the beginning of the film, it is not the piano version but rather the orchestral version orchestrated by Debussy. For some unknown reason, Debussy changed the numbers of the Gymnopédies: thus the orchestral version of Gymnopédie No. 3 bears the tune of Gymnopédie No. 1! See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Marion: [voiceover] If someone had asked me when I reached my fifties to assess my life, I would have said that I had achieved a decent measure of fulfillment, both personally and professionally. Beyond that, I would say I don't choose to delve.

Makes Us Reflect On The Choices We Make In Life
20 November 2001 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This is not like any other Woody Allen movie I've seen before. He writes and directs this film which hits many levels of the human heart. The acting is well performed and the subject matter makes you reflect upon your own life and the choices you've made along the way. This one is to be added to your collection.
