Storyline

Love story da groppo in gola per due 'belli e impossibili' di Hollywood, di quelle che ti fanno sperare per tutto il film in un eccezionale lieto fine. In una New York autunnale ed umida, Will è uno chef cinquantenne molto amato dalle donne e senza storie troppo lunghe da raccontare, Charlotte è una ventenne dalla salute precaria ed entrambi sono convinti che la loro avventura durerà poco. Sarà vero? Ma l'amore può essere più forte di tutto quando un male incurabile sta minando il fisico della ragazza? Written by rosebud6

Muted, subtle, and rewarding
16 September 2000 | by (Dawson Creek, B.C., Canada) – See all my reviews

Slow and somber, muted and subtle, Autumn in New York isn't like most movies.

Set against a backdrop of pastels and shades, this sad yet engaging story about doomed love is full of symbolism and metaphor revolving around renewal and decay, second chances and confronting one's past, and hearts on the mend both spiritually and physically.

Winona Ryder plays Charlotte Fielding, a young woman blessed with simple good looks but stuck with a faulty heart that threatens to limit her days. Richard Gere plays Will, an older man whose years of toil in the restaurant business are starting to pay off.

Will suffers from an ailment of a different kind, an inability to stay true to his woman, something that tends to hurt others more than himself. As it turns out Will once even dated Charlotte's mother only to cruelly jilt her by seducing her best friend.

Ever the womanizer, Will can't help himself, and when they meet one night, he hatches a plot to woo Charlotte. Already giddy at his very sight, Charlotte is easily swept off her feet and is soon in love.

Alas, Will hasn't changed much. When Charlotte intuitively discovers that he's been cheating, their relationship hits the rocks. Only this time Will does feel bad and finally tries to break out of his pattern of deceit.

Meanwhile, his notoriety as a restaurant owner turns into something of a two-edged sword as the daughter from the woman he seduced then spots his photo on a magazine cover and tracks him down.

What follows is Will's efforts to not only put the pieces back together but create a future that both he and Charlotte can share. The trouble is, it could also mean some very radical surgery that Charlotte may not survive.

Although set in New York, it could just as easily have played out in a small northern British Columbia town as the six degrees of separation rule very much applies. In fact, it's Charlotte's grandmother who introduces the two, despite knowing all to well how Will treated her daughter.

Don't expect any car chases, fireball explosions, or over the top special effects. But do expect a movie that is splendidly shot in hues of orange and yellow, green and grey, and opts for opaques and shadow over bright and blinding.

And while the pacing is as slow as molasses, Autumn in New York nonetheless seeps deep into the psyche and remains there all season long.
