Trivia

The address which Rachel gives Eddie - 330 Central Park West - does not, and could not exist in reality, as all residences on Central Park West have odd-numbered addresses. The even-numbered address side of the street is actually the side of the street that Central Park borders. See more »

Virginia Madsen
25 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Virginia Madsen is up for an Oscar.

I remembered her role in the Movie Gotham with Tommy Lee Jones. For those who would like to enter a different reality enjoy! I see that it was a TV movie I recommend this movie for all mature audiences.

Tommy Lee Jones was fantastic and you see another side of his acting style. Virginia Madsen carried the movie and does not disappoint!

The setting takes place in New York in the night with lighting and sets that are spare and allow the actors to fill the night with their mysterious liaison.

If I cannot make the 10 line minimum it would be a shame i don not want to "give" the movie away. The mystery is the movie.

I hope someone will see the movie and be able to fill in the needed ten lines to entice others to watch!
