Other title "A Strange Affair"...Judith Light and Jay Thomas...
9 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good combination- and an odd story based on fact.

The title- "A Strange Affair" is a bit more intriguing.This is an interesting story, well-acted by Judith Light and Jay Thomas.

When Light's husband (Jay Thomas) has a stroke, she decides to attempt a catering business, at first it is very uncertain, but she encounters a sympathetic auto mechanic who helps her out.

If this was fiction, it would be boring. But somehow, Light draws in the audience, makes us care. She is after all, doing the right thing, caring for a selfish husband, and trying to make things work. The children are on the periphery.

There are some beautiful winter scenes of Horseshoe Falls and the Seattle coastline, flying at 14,000 feet. This is a good film- give it a chance. Light always rises to the occasion, and makes us care about the characters involved. Jay Thomas is also believable,and sympathetic. Hope to see him in more family drama. 9/10.
