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
Not screened in advance for critics. Both Richard Gere and Winona Ryder spoke out publicly against this move, saying it damned the film's credibility. MGM countered that the reason for the action was that they didn't want critics spoiling the film's "surprise" ending. See more »
Charlotte makes a hat specifically to wear to the ball, but she isn't wearing it when she finally gets there; presumably, she got distracted and forgot it. See more »
Buddy, I hate to break it to you, but in the real world... where I live... there're only two kinds of love stories. Boy loses girl and girl loses boy. That's all there is. Somebody always gets left behind. You try to avoid that, you'll end up an old man toastin' yourself with egg nog in the mirror on Christmas Eve. You'll end up dying in your own arms.

For those who like adore tear-generating love stories, this one is perfect for an Autumn evening in front of the fire
Will (Richard Gere) is a New York City restaurateur and ladies man, in his middle forties. His life's motto is definitely love 'em and leave 'em and have fun in between. So, when he meets Charlotte (Winona Ryder), a beautiful young lady half his age, he is surprised at how smitten he is with her. Wanting to make a connection, he hires her to make a hat for his date to a charity function. When she shows up at his apartment on the evening of the affair, he informs her that his date is sick. Would she, Charlotte, take her place? She agrees and they have a lovely evening together, one that lasts all night. Love is in the air, all right. But, Charlotte confides in Will that she has a dire medical condition, one that is threatening her life. What will their future hold? This is really a nice film for those who like to sigh and cry over a set of star-crossed lovers. Gere is great as the aging lothario and Ryder positively enchanting as the spunky and lovely young lady in his life. The rest of the cast members, including Anthony LaPaglia, Sherry Stringfield, and Elaine Stritch, are great. Then, too, the film is replete with lovely costumes, sets and scenery, making for a very beautiful watch. If you have a hankering for romances, even and especially ones that elicit tears, you should get this film without delay. On an autumn evening, with a fire blazing and mugs of hot chocolate on hand, you will feel very satisfied when the story is spent.
