STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

Connie and Edward Sumner (Diane Lane and Richard Gere) are a well off couple,living in the New York suburbs and raising their young son Charlie (Erik Per Sullivan).Edward,however,is the manager of a big name import/delivery service and seems to be neglecting his wife somewhat lately.On one particularly windy day,Connie has an encounter with a handsome (and much younger) stranger,who she later comes to know as Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez) a New York based book dealer who takes an instant shine to her.Before long,the pair are engaging in an outrageous adulterous fling behind Edward's back.The truly nasty twist comes,however,when Edward discovers about the affair.

This is a stylish and competent thriller.It may not perhaps have the best character development/build-up in the world,but it is really lifted no end by Gere's powerful performance as the devastated betrayed hubby,which really comes to light when he goes to confront Martinez.Adrian Lyne's direction is carried along nicely,thrilling us with many sudden twists and turns,marvellously executed and hitting the mark perfectly.***
