Storyline

Jake is a writer. He is married to Maggie, but his marriage is in trouble. He cannot stop thinking about other women in his life, characters he invents conversations with. He is constantly talking to: his deceased wife Julie, his daughter Molly, his sister Karen, and his psychiatrist Edith. All he does is have imaginary conversations with real people that are at the moment out of his life. Maggie cannot stand his mind wandering off all the time and decides to separate for six months and at the end of six months they will decide whether or not to remain together. Jake has a few girl friends, but spends the six months, while waiting for Maggie, only talking to these imaginary people, and a few times to real people. Written by Rosemea D.S. MacPherson

Sweet, tender and well-created this is one of the best movies I have ever seen!
22 February 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Extremely talented and experienced author sentence by sentence one can see Neil Simon's genius writing. The script has rhythm! It is well directed! Beautiful cinematography! Mira Sorvino ( Mighty Aphrodite ) is beautiful in this role, and this is one of her best performances. This is a pre-Oscar winning performance by Sorvino that touched my heart! Those scenes where she is fishing in beautiful Vermont mountains are very touching. The performance of Alan Alda is flawless. He is just a wonderful actor. Anne Acher in her Laura Ashley dresses is very good. Julie Kavner plays this is funny character who wears crazy clothes and does all kinds of very imaginative things. Mollie who is played by Ashley Peldon is adorable, changing her hair does every five minutes because she is nervous! Those tender scenes with Mollie and father just kills' me! Kimberly Williams did a good job also. The music is perfect by David Shire, and that wonderful sound of the Gershwin brothers, (George and Ira) so traditional to American Cinema adds rhythm to the script! This wonderful movie needs to be released, or, at least made available in tape for the audience.
