Stella is a highly successful, forty-something San Francisco stock broker who is persuaded by her colorful New York girlfriend Delilah to take a well deserved, first-class vacation to Jamaica. As she soaks in the beauty of the island, she encounters a strapping, young islander, Winston Shakespeare. His pursuits for her turn into a hot and steamy romance that forces Stella to take personal inventory of her life and try to find a balance between her desire for love and companionship, and the responsibilities of mother and corporate executive.

Originally cast as the old man who hits on Stella during her initial stay in Jamaica, all of Danny Glover's scenes were deleted from the final cut of the film. He's seen briefly in the film during the scene where Stella, submerged in a pool, is talking to Winston (who's standing poolside), and points out an older man who's been hitting on her during her stay. In a quick long shot, Glover can be seen in old age make-up holding a flower he intends to give to Stella. See more »
When Winston is going to show Stella the room he made her for building furniture it is dark, but when Winston opens the door you can easily see that there is sunlight coming through the doorway. See more »

Though provoking film that transcends age, race, and Gender.
Angela Bassett is absolutely the finest actress working today. Every performance she puts in is masterful, however this is by far her best to date. As a male in my early 30s I normally don't like love stories, but I have always enjoyed Angela's work. The movie was stylish and the 40 year old actress still looks 25. She is tough, but caring throughout the movie. I don't spoil plots, but it is nice to see Angela be in a movie with romance involved. And for all you immature kids out there don't expect to see Angela topless or anything (No Nudity clause in her contract), but she exudes enough sexuality while still leaving it up to the imagination. If you want to see the tough side of Angela go rent Strange Days.
