A vehicle to finally see Fisher Stevens' talent
17 October 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I viewed this film at the Hamptons Film Festival. I found it to be enjoyable and quite interesting. The ending is not predictable and is quite thought provoking.

It is the tale of a writer who seems to have a block in completing his second novel and in the mean time goes through a journey of self awareness.

I found Fisher Stevens, Sam Manning, to have finally found a character thought allowed him to stretch his skills. He is definitely an underused actor.
