Storyline

Set in early 1900s France, a widow renews a former romantic interest, until it is discovered that he has had a past fling with one of her new employees, a nanny. This sets the two women into many well-mannered accusations and conversations, but no modern brawling, and puts him in the middle, or possibly on the outside. Written by John Sacksteder <jsack@jka.net>

Quotes

Anna Leath: I have no-one to consider but my step-son now.
Sophy Viner: You don't mean? You're not going to give up Mr Darrow? Because of me? Don't you see that I went away so that he shouldn't have to lose you? He loves you. He has never loved anyone else. Even those few days in Paris, I knew it all the while. He never cared for me. He was sorry for me. I knew that was all he ever felt. I knew he was thinking of someone else. He never said a word to deceive me. I wanted to feel happy just for once. I never dreamed of ...

how to make a sow's ear from a silk purse
18 March 2006 | by madmur2See all my reviews

This is an adaptation of an Edith Wharton work, whose writing is amazing. Sadly, this movie never shakes the feeling that these 20th century movie people don't grasp the 19th century repression and desperation Wharton's work depicts. Ward and Dalton aren't so bad, but Alicia Witt's wooden performance made me wince. She was supposed to be playing the restless element of the story, but she stood like a stick the whole movie long, and I never believed a word out of her mouth. When she asks Sela Ward "Why can't I move you?" near the end of the film, I couldn't help but answer: "That's what I've been wondering for the last hour and a half!!!"
