A former street tough returns to his Philadelphia home after a stint in the military. Back on his home turf, he once again finds himself tangling with the mob boss who was instrumental in his going off to be a soldier.
Young and attractive lawyer Jonathan is soon to be married to Isabel but then he meets young actor Alec and they fall in love. Isabel's mother, Diana, finds out the truth about Jonathan who now has to choose between Isabel and Alec, and his choice is ...
Diana (Glenn Close) is a drama teacher who daughter Isabel (Elizabeth Banks is getting married. She's going to marry Jonathan (James Marsden) but she's not sure if it's what she should do. Her ex Mark (Matt Davis) offers her a job that might be a way out. Actor Alec (Jesse Bradford) auditions for Diana and she becomes attracted to him. And photographer Benjamin Moore is having a show...and all hell will break loose. Got all that?
Multi-character drama seriously offers nothing new plot-wise but it's well-written and acted by a great cast. Close leads the way and is superb followed closely by Banks. Even Marsden, Bradford and Davis are good--and I've never really liked any of them. Well-directed with good use of Rufus Wainwright music. There's also a very passionate gay kiss. But seriously...I've seen this all before. These plots have been done in other movies. Still it's worth catching for the acting alone. Recommended.
