Waste of a good cast! 3/10
7 February 2015 | by leonblackwoodSee all my reviews

Review: This is another movie which I found hard to get into! It really takes ages for anything to happen and when it finally gets going, I didn't really understand what the point was. Its about a woman who tragically looses her husband in a swimming accident and 5 years later, she meets another man who looks exactly the same. She eventually realises that she is using the man to get over the death of her husband and the guy starts questioning why they were together. I found it a bit weird that the director used Ed Harris to play the ex-husband and the new boyfriend and the director made a weird choice of casting Robin Williams as the next door neighbour, who didn't have that many scenes. Anyway, I wasn't that impressed with the pace of the film but on the plus side, it isn't that long.   Disappointing!

Round-Up: I can't remember the last time that I saw Annette Benning in a decent movie. She was quite good in American Beauty and Running With Scissors but she seems to be sticking to the same type of roles lately. I don't think that she has a wide range but she does have the ability to bring emotion to her roles. Ed Harris puts in his usually good performance but the script didn't push his ability. Robin Williams looked a bit lost throughout the film but it was good to see him in one of his last roles. Anyway, I was left feeling pretty empty when the film finished because I couldn't really remember anything amazing happening. Judging by the box office takings, I'm not alone with thinking that the director didn't make the more of a good cast.   Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $1.5million

I recommend this movie to people who are into their deep dramas about a lady who looses her husband in a tragic swimming accident and falls in love with someone who looks exactly like him. 3/10
