Trivia

The filmmakers spent a long time casting Carl because they wanted a big-name actor. But they kept returning to the unknown Tony Goldwyn's audition tape and finally cast him. See more »

Goofs

In the exchange between Molly and Lyle the bank officer, she asks him if that was Oda Mae, and wanted to know what business they had just done. Lyle tells Molly her name (Rita Miller) and said that she was closing an account. By federal law, bank personnel can never discuss the details of one customer's transaction or identity with another. However, Lyle is a "social moron," very likely to have forgotten or not cared enough about the law to keep himself from discussing it with Molly, or intently believing that, because Sam was a bank employee, he could freely discuss it with Molly without fear.

This is a good film
17 August 2001 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

My wife loves this film, and I found it more then a romance movie. A intriguing story, of deception, death, the after life, and greed. This is a great film, with character you care about, suspense, romance, and a fresh script. This film made Patricks carrier, and after this film he chose a few films that killed his chances of acting in higher budget films. I believe if he picked a couple more scripts like this one he would be on the same level as Tom Cruse. I think the politically correct 90's found him too macho for their tastes, and it drove him to do that film about India which helped kill his carrier. In the end this film is a little about what Patrick could have been, a true international star.
