Storyline

Marian (Deborah Kara Unger) and John Kerr (Jared Harris) are expecting an old friend, Lyle (David Conrad) for a weekend visit to their beautiful upstate New York home. Emotions run high since it is the one-year anniversary of the death of John`s brother, the handsome and charismatic Tony (D.B. Sweeney), who had also been Lyle`s lover. Marian, who is still inconsolable after losing Tony to AIDS, is upset when Lyle brings his new boyfriend, a young artist, Robert (James Duval). Meanwhile, the situation is just as tense at the Kerr`s neighbors` house, where oft-widowed, free spirit Laura Ponti (Gena Rowlands) gets a surprise visit from her resentful, angry daughter, Nina (Brooke Shields), and her married lover, Thierry (Gary Dourdan). Matters worsen when the battling mother-daughter duo joins the Kerr household for a dinner party, where the pain-riddled diners engage in a messy emotional showdown. Written by Anonymous

works for the better.
8 January 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Although i really enjoyed this film it was a little slow and tedious at times.Not so much with the story,but with the slow burning conversations that so annoyingly poured out of Deborah Kerr Ungers mouth.Thiis was the only let down.She didn't seem wooden so much,just annoying.I felt it was strange that she couldn't spit anything out at an adequate speed.Gena Rowlands was amazing as was the character she portrayed.Another great surprise was from Brooke shields.She really shines in this role and these two woman make the whole film from becoming a bore.Their banter was enjoyable from beginning to satisfying end.Brooke pulled off this dramatic role with gusto and looked great doing it.For those who want a fast paced,elaborate film,this is not for you.But for those who want a heart felt,character driven, deep film than this may be for you.
