3 men rob a place. Hayden's killed, Johnny's wounded and does 5 years prison and Patty leaves with the money. He sees Hayden's sister/A.Jolie. When released, Johnny goes straight and wants a boxing career.
Covering nearly fifty years of mid-19th-century turmoil, from the tumultuous Texas Revolution to the early women's suffrage movement, "True Women" is a gripping tale of endurance, love, and above all, gritty female determination.
Eleven articulate people work through affairs of the heart in Los Angeles. Paul produces Hannah's television cooking show, and they must move beyond gentle barbs when she wants to know about an affair of his years ago. Mark is dying of A.I.D.S., and his mother comes to his bedside: they must speak truthfully. Men have scalded Meredith, so she rebuffs Trent's charm, but he persists. The trendy, prolix Joan tries to pull the solitary Keenan into her orbit: why is he reluctant? An adulterous couple meets at hotels for evening sex, but she is unwilling for the relationship to grow. Hugh tells tall tales, usually tragic, to women in bars. By the week's end, their parallel stories converge.Written by
Sir Sean Connery took just sixty thousand dollars as his salary for this movie, as he was keen to play a character his age in a relationship with someone his own age. This was a far cry from the fourteen million dollars he earned on The Rock (1996). See more »
Throughout the entire movie, whenever there is a scene (and there are many) involving martinis, between shots the olives and level of vodka in the glass change. This happens many time when a character either eats an olive or is about to eat one, it will re-appear in the glass seconds later. Also - many times where the character is starting to say something, and the view is changed to be from their point of view and their lips are no longer moving. See more »

This movie is a telling of 5 individual stories about 5 different couples that seem to have no link at first but come together at the end. I found that 2 of the 5 stories were actually watchable. The other 3 went out on vacation and never came back.
Tried to be too real but couldn't shake its fairy-tale feel. Anjelina Jolie was the most memorable as the annoying girl that grows on you and Gillian Anderson was interesting as Dana Scully with a different name, dark hair and a new love interest.
If you MUST watch this because of the marquee names, save your 8 bucks and rent it. Better yet, wait for cable.
