But when Suzanne's husband is let out on a technicality, she is forced to choose between the man she loves and the man she built a life with.
Reunites Demi Moore and Alec Bladwin who previously worked together in The Juror (1996). See more »
In the library scene where Alec Baldwin's character gives an impressive lecture, it is clearly heard that a crew member is saying the phrases then Alec Bladwin repeats them so each phrase is said twice. See more »
This movie doesn't fit neatly into a category. Parts of it seem like a middle age rom com with the music and wooing. Then part of it seems more dramatic.
Demi Moore plays a wife of a finance guy who gets in trouble with the law. She has to do some community service and reads to a blind writer/teacher played by Alec Baldwin.
The main fault is Alec Baldwin although he tries to act charming is a too overweight and unattractive to be the romantic lead. Demi Moore is still striking if a little scary looking. But not in a horror story way. Dylan McDermott is good as the menacing hedge fund husband who gets in trouble.
