Excellent well acted and exquisitely produced movie
18 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I did not realize that this movie was made in 1999 since we had never seen it come to theaters. Because we are fans of Laura Linney, we had an interest in viewing it. We were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed the acting and the story line which proved to be very engaging. This is a movie for thinking adults who love the theater and do not need for a movie to have stunts, special effects and noise. The movie's message is timeless and realistically represents situations many of our age group have encountered. The actors work very hard to keep the viewers interest in a setting that is quite challenging. Hollywood rarely takes risks but I'm glad they did on this movie.
