worthwhile adult drama
24 August 2001 | by (ny,ny) – See all my reviews

Kingsley and Novak give memorable performances in this adult drama about a beautiful middle aged woman who competes with his children for the love of a widower. Too bad this underseen drama didn't lead to more roles for Kim. She is startingly beautiful. Karen Black, though, is wasted, in an extremely small cameo.
