I caught this movie by chance 5 minutes into the beginning, and I stayed because of beautiful Lorraine Bracco's impeccable passionate performance. She is one of many underappreciated actors in Hollywood. I expected the same of Martin Donovan. Throughout the movie I kept waiting for him to reveal something more than this strangely lacklustre, almost wooden performance, especially because he had made such a drastic move by turning his wife out of their house literally overnight. His performance did not give me any clues to his personality, but knowing and liking Mr.Donovan, I kept waiting till the end. The script did not provide anything and in the end it just peters out. It's a pity because it's such an everyday issue, most of us have been in that place at some point of our lives, but only one of the scenes with the children was really outstanding. I gave it 5 points only for Ms.Bracco!
