Movie Info

Screenwriter Audrey Wells (best known for The Truth About Cats and Dogs) makes her directorial debut in this film about an unusual May-November romance. Harper Sloane (Sarah Polley) is a 20-year-old woman who has never felt particularly comfortable or important within her family. While suffering through her older sister's wedding reception, she meets Connie Fitzpatrick (Stephen Rea), a 50-ish photogapher hired to take pictures of the wedding. They talk a bit and Connie snaps Harper's picture; when he sends her a copy of the result, she decided to pay him a visit, which turns out to be the first step in a serious relationship. However, Harper soon discovers this is neither casual or unusual for Connie; he has a long history of five-year relationships with younger women who eventually outgrow him, and as Connie tries to bring out Harper's potential, she becomes more keenly aware of the dead ends and loose threads of his life. Guinevere boasts a strong supporting cast, including Jean Smart, Paul Dooley, Gina Gershon, Jasmine Guy and Gedde Watanabe.

    Couple of great actors in what is essentially a silly little movie. The romance seems forced. Yes, back to the original point. A wee bit silly.

    An intriguing movie! Interesting role for Sarah Polley. Stephen Rea is great. Gina Gershon is absolutely beautiful. Great music by Christophe Beck!
