When someone is suffering from acute neutropenia (a common low white blood count following chemotherapy), as is the stated case after Sarah is rushed to the hospital upon collapsing, she would be kept in an isolated environment and her family would not be free to just run into her room off the street and collapse onto her bed, hugging her. At the very least, they'd be gloved, gowned and masked to guard against the spread of infection to the patient. See more »

The mainstream drama with comedy continues to improve with time and "In The Land of Women" is no exception. In a return of Meg Ryan along with some new young actors, this movie has some fine moments of focus on higher level emotional and narrative dialogues without the stuffy intellectual performances. There is a rich content of feelings here dealing with good topics without necessarily becoming sappy. One criticism regarding the weak ending can be considered its strength. This storyline of this feature film doesn't follow the typical path of most romance dramas to its credit. More along the line of "Lost in Translation" with a plot, this movie touches more on mood and redirecting the audience to important concepts about relationships and real situations in an entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes sad delivery. While no Neil Simon perfection and the balance between comedy and drama is off, as only a personal preference, this movie suffers from that difficulty fine balance. Nevertheless its a fine film. Eight out of Ten Stars.
