Quotes

Man on the Hill: There are also boundaries - that's part of it - it's not just this magnetic field, it's the initial response to the magnetic field that makes us build these fences. These fences, it's the way that we build everything -to protect ourselves so that we are just looking at each other across these acceptable distances. And we drew the line so we separated out. That is not our purpose. We are at odds. We are at odds right? So there isn't any real help. There really isn't any real help.

A thoughtful examination of some aspects of love, and worth your time
5 April 1999 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

A previous commentist accurately summarized the plot as follows: When an abusive man's girlfriend ends up in a wheelchair and another one jumps in front of a car to end her misery, attorney William Hurt decides to bring him to trial. Emotionally-scarred Robin Wright is called to testify at a court hearing against her former lover.

However, the rest of his comments indicate that it's not just adolescent Americans who want movie stories neatly finished by the end of the movie. I found this film to be a thoughtful examination of several aspects of love and dependency. It provides no easy answers to the questions posed and actually requires the viewer to pay attention and THINK. Performances are uniformly excellent, especially Robin Penn Wright's in the principal role.
