29 November 2007 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

A spinster named Christine(Jacqueline Bisset) changing her weary life, returns to her annual vacation on Saratoga Springs resort . She finds herself surrounded by misfit group. An old woman named Vera(Elizabeth Sheperd), the General(Michael Hogan), a priest (Julian Sands) and a lover from past named Theo(Peter Weller), the man she loved and lost 20 years before .Then, their passion is rekindled, both willing to retake a second chance, though soon others are complicating the situation . But with appearance her younger pupil (Amy Locane) have problems . She woos to Theo while Christine goes back her home where her father is dieing. Besides the priest is romanced to young woman(Karyn Dwyer).

This one contains romance, drama, passions, jealousy and is quite entertaining. Acceptable picture and regency-romance fans will appreciate the attention to detail because is well setting. The film is classified ¨R¨ for strong sex scenes, in spite of being a TV movie. Casting is frankly excellent, their performances are the highlights, Jacqueline Bisset(Rich and famous)is nice as sensible spinster, Peter Weller(Robocop) as a mature,gallant and handsome man, plus, Amy Locale(Cry-baby) as feisty young girl, Julian Sands(Room with a view) as impulsive priest and Polly Shannon in a very secondary role as a maid. The film is correctly directed by Linda Yellen. She's a director and producer of TV movies(Romance of Charles and Diana, Playing for time) and occasionally director for cinema(The Simian line). This television picture will like to romantic-drama fans
