Quotes

Caroline: Adam, do you like life?
Adam: [chuckles] Well, I wouldn't like to live forever. But um, for a little while, yes, but... yes, I like it.
Caroline: But living here? You wouldn't rather be somewhere else, New York, London?
Adam: No.
Caroline: Why not?
Adam: Because you have to care about - or at least pretend to care about everything: politics, fashion, culture. It's just exhausting.
Caroline: What I wouldn't give to see some new painters, a new play, go to the opera... Yes, I know. "To Moscow, Olga."
Adam: Yeah.

Screened 25 minutes of it!
24 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just got to see a 25 minutes sneak peak at the Monterey Film Festival over the weekend, and I can tell you it certainly left me wanting more! The scenery was lush and beautiful. Anthony Hopkins is in his element, playing the brother of the dead author, and I am particularly excited for Linney's performance as the pinched and long-suffering widow, who shares the same living space with her husband's mistress. It's hard to say whether it will dip into the melodramatic, since we were only allowed to see such a short bit of it, but considering the strong cast, and solid performances we were able to see, this film looks as though it will not disappoint.
