IT’S NEVER TOO LATE FOR A SECOND CHANCE.
Doctor Paul Flanner (Richard Gere) arrives at a North Carolina inn, which is temporarily tended by Adrienne Willis (Diane Lane); they are both going through crises and find a sympathetic shoulder to lean on. Critics had few nice things to say about renowned Broadway director George C. Wolfe’s first film, but he shouldn’t feel too bad about it. He’s done his best with a thin and mediocre story, trying to emphasize the beauty and drama of the location. Gere and Lane, reunited after Unfaithful (2002), are an attractive couple, but Scott Glenn is even better as a grieving neighbor.
