Storyline

Wall Street golden boy Ted Ammon falls madly in love with sassy saleswoman Generosa Rand, marries her and wants to start a family. After, not being able to conceive, the couple try other methods to bear a child. After, those methods fail, they adopt twins. A boy and a girl. Ted, realizes she has a mental illness, which he wants her to seek help for. She refuses to do so. She thinks Ted is saying she is crazy, like her mother.. During a bitter divorce procedure, she spends millions just to spite him, however accommodating he swallows absurd terms, and still tries to turn both kids against Ted, while cheating on him with dodgy contractor Danny Pelosi, who has a criminal record. After Ted dies in suspicious circumstances, Generosa turns against Danny, just as meanly, in favor of an English nanny/nurse once Generosa is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Written by KGF Vissers

Well worth the wait...
8 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'd waited to see this for ages - heard about it from all my US friends and on various Without A Trace boards and then missed it when we finally got it in the US. Luckily one of my friends sent me it and it was well worth the wait.

Of course, I only wanted to see it because of Poppy, but once I started watching it I completely forgot it was her, I got so wrapped up in the story. I love everything about the story itself, which I guess can't be credited to anyone since it actually happened. I think Poppy did an amazing job of portraying Generosa, though I wasn't surprised at all. She has a great range.

There wasn't a dull moment in the film - it had its funny parts, its sad parts and its downright weird parts. I loved the whole Generosa telling the kids one thing, Ted telling them something else. It was well structured throughout, especially with the different people from the neighbourhood talking about what happened and hearing all the rumours before seeing it all for yourself.

Great movie, I definitely want to watch it again.
