Is this Joaquin Phoenix's last movie? He says so. He's the downbeat man torn between the daughter of a family friend (Vinessa Shaw) and the beautiful woman along the hall (Gwyneth Paltrow, in a part written with her in mind). Premiered at Cannes, the film reunites Phoenix with the director of We own the night. And yes, that's Isabella Rossellini playing his mother.
“There is something grand about the film's sincerity and the intensity of its emotions.”
“Well acted...An involving, ultimately touching romantic drama.”
