Sarah Michelle Gellar,
With her life at a crossroads, 25 year old Sophie Conway returns home to the small town she always wanted to forget. Once home, she is faced with the friends and lovers she left behind, a tangled relationship with her Mother, and Harry Pleasant, an Alzheimer's Disease patient who, in an opposing way, shares Sophie's struggle to remember.
A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.
Sarah Michelle Gellar,
Brett, a young woman from the suburbs, is an associate editor at a small New York publishing house, hoping to be promoted when, on the same day, she meets a literary lion, Archie Knox, who's 50 and who shows an interest in her, and gets a new boss, a dolly-dolly Brit. Brett is soon dating Archie, then moves in with him. He's charming, attentive, and gives advice. He also has a history - ex-wives, a distant daughter, a couple of diseases, and a photo album of former girlfriends. It's no fairy tale: family issues (and more) intervene, and Brett has decisions to make. Meanwhile, she's working with a writer who fears peanut butter sticking to the roof of his mouth. Is Archie dinner, an hors d'oeuvre, or a peanut-butter sandwich? Written by
At the scene where Brett goes to Archie's place to tell him that someone was reading her book she meets a girl who was having an affair with Archie.

But don't forget that I need you too. More than I've ever needed anybody before.

Because you may not think so, but you're different.
From all the rest?

A Gorgeous-Looking, Straight to Video Romantic Drama
The oddly named movie about a book editor is lavishly portrayed in this brilliantly colorful movie that has splashes of dazzling array of photographic hues and tones that make many scenes picture-book snapshots. Overall, this romantic drama is a coming of age movie about a young lady who falls for the older man. Along the way Sarah Michelle's character must confront her own family issues as well as the complications of relationships as professional office politics. This is sort of a Devil's Wears Prada (2006) junior version of the book world. A predictable, but entertaining movie, nice to look at, with a few improvements on the older stuff. Seven out of Ten Stars.
