But Reese is unable to commit to a more permanent relationship as long as his wife is alive, despite his

Audience Reviews for The Only Thrill

Cast: Diane Keaton, Sam Shepard, Diane Lane, Robert Patrick, Tate Donovan, Sharon Lawrence, Stacey Travis, Brad Leland

Director: Peter Masterson

Summary: Timing is everything -- and it's never right for clothing store owner Reece McHenry (Sam Shepard) and widowed seamstress Carol Fitzsimmons (Diane Keaton) as circumstances conspire to keep them apart despite a love that spans three decades. Meanwhile, Carol's daughter (Diane Lane) and Reece's son (Robert Patrick) begin an affair of their own that provides a disquieting mirror for their parents in this bittersweet drama.

My Thoughts: "This is probably a movie for an older crowed or for those who don't mind not having young folk in their films. It's a bitter sweet love story that takes place in this film. Everytime they come together they let the other slip away. It's a great lesson in love and that it's never too late. I love Diane Keaton and Sam Shepard in this movie. They just have great chemistry together. The story is slow, but I liked it's pace. This is a movie you have to be in the mood for. Those who like romance films and love stories will be sure to enjoy this film."

Average drama with a cast far above this kind of pedestrian effort.
