Forty-eight year old Will Keane is a successful restaurateur and serial womanizer, his reputation generally preceding him. When he is introduced to twenty-two year old Charlotte Fielding by Charlotte's grandmother, Will's old friend Dolly who he has not seen in years, there is a mutual but slow to acknowledge attraction. After their first date, Will and Charlotte agree that their relationship will never progress to one of a long term standing, but for different reasons: while this is Will's somewhat standard modus operandi, Charlotte announces that she has a terminal heart condition. Charlotte's admission makes Will look at this relationship differently, he being told by his best friend John that if he is going to continue to date Charlotte that he better treat her well. Their relationship does end up being different than both expect, for Charlotte which could mean a change from her current "let me die in peace" attitude to want to fight for her life.

Will was stated to be 48 while Charlotte is supposed to be 22, old enough to be her father. Richard Gere was 51 while Winona Ryder was actually 29 during production. See more »

In this movie, there's only one thing that is good. It's beautiful autumn scene of New York. Unfortunately, the autumn isn't big part of the movie and rests of this movie are awful. I mean HORRIBLE. Joan Chen's directing is so cheesy that you can even tell what happens next before the next scene starts. ( Watching this film, it was obvious that Joan had watched so many B-rated romance movies) So many cliches of the romance films(like star-crossed love, a woman who has serious disease, a Casanova who is lonesome and finally gets a true relationship)are here. Richard Gere tries to make himself a good-looking, mature, cool guy, but his intention goes all wrong. He just seems to be a CHEESY. Also, Winona Rider tries to be so cute that everything about her in the film is just overacting. This film needed more natural tone for everything. Overacting, bad directing, really bad script. Renting fee for this movie is wasting the money.
