This is one of those slow, meandering movies in the same vein as Nine Lives, though not quite as good - a look at women's lives and loves, and the search for personal connections. I see from the imdb that it was nominated for an Emmy, so perhaps it was made for TV? That would explain the presence - welcome, in both cases - of two actors known more for their TV work than movies: Callista Flockhart and Amy Brenneman. Both were exceptional, standouts for me in a cast of great actors including Glenn Close, Holly Hunter and Gregor Hines. All the performances were terrific, with the notable exception of Cameron Diaz, who used a demure downcast gaze as the only way to indicate being blind, and who delivered her lines like someone in a high-school play.
Overall, this is a quality production, and I enjoyed my time with the characters
