Great movie
20 January 2002 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie, being a widow myself I related to the two characters. Most of the greatest love affairs are wrought with complications and never end in the happily ever after scenario. This was my first introduction to Vincent D'Onfrio and I loved him in this movie and The Whole Wide World but his other characters have been too harsh and I like to remember him by Salt On Our Skin. I think it is neat how this movie started a real life love affair between Vincent D'Onofrio and Greta Scacchi and they produced a daughter which they named after Greta's character in this movie (George).
