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

Escaping the past
19 May 2000 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

A weekend in the country provokes crises in the lives of a couple and their houseguests as past relationships intrude into the present, and new alliances are formed. Sharp, witty performances from Gena Rowlands, Brooke Shields, Jared Harris, Deborah Unger, D.B. Sweeney et al. Lushly filmed to evoke the languor of a summer weekend, and the haunting and disruptive presence of the past.
