Trivia

Richard Gere's character rides a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle in the movie. San Diego Antique Motorcycle Club president Art Bishop lent his Triumph Bonneville to the film makers for a scene at short notice. Eagle-eyed filmgoers may spot that Bishop's bike is a 1977 750cc T140 Triumph Bonneville whilst a 1966 650cc T120 Triumph Bonneville is in scenes shot earlier. Both Triumphs are finished in blue and white. See more »

A Portrait of Mental Illness
30 January 2013 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Richard Gere offers up a rather penetrating performance of manic-depression and the highs and lows of such a condition. Unlike 28 Days (2000) or Girl Interrupted (1999) there seems to be an imbalance in presentation of the movie itself and its highs and lows in a way that unfortunately distorts the presentation of mental illness. Lena Olin's character as Dr. Bowen, a psychiatrist, M.D. doesn't necessarily offer up sufficient character development to justify the movie's ultimate plot and dynamic interplay with Richard Gere's character as Mr. Jones, unlike perhaps a student intern that would have required much less back story and more consistent with the storyline. The climax of the movie is more of an American romantic drama instead of the more genuine drama that most of the movie itself held onto its integrity. The ending unlike the more Helen (2009) which might be considered stronger in its overall tone and theme, nevertheless is weaker in its depiction of the experiences found with such chemical imbalances.
