Movie Info

The appropriately named Lucky Mann (Nick Nolte) is a contractor equally handy at repairs and seduction. The latest lonely housewife to succumb to his charms is Marianne (Lara Flynn Boyle), childless and unhappy with her marriage to business-obsessed Jeffrey (Jonny Lee Miller). When Jeffrey coincidentally becomes enraptured by Lucky's wife, the fading former starlet Phyllis (Julie Christie), the four get caught in a tangled-up love quadrangle that reignites their tired marriages.

    Afterglow This movie is another from a long list of movies that played at the 1997 Tronto Internatinal Film Festival. Not one of the best from that list, but still worth watching. This movie was filmed in Montreal Canada and Nick Nolte is a handyman who is fixing more then minor repairs in his travels. His wife ( Julie Christie) is a burned out actress who had a child by another actor while married to Nick, of course one day during an arrugment she brings up the fact that the child who is now 15 is not his, major mistake child hears runs away and so is the story line of our film. Nick is not giving it up to his unfaithful wife in 3-4 years but is screwing all his clients.Of course one client falls in love with him. All in all its not that trashy and has its moments but I can only give it 3 stars

    Julie Christie is radiant as the wronged wife easily outshining the rest of cast. It's a pity she doesn't work more but it makes each time she does something special.

    I was expecting this to be a little more interesting to be honest. This partner sharing story is unique in that it is set in Montreal which is not taking the place of a U.S. City but I was expecting fabulous...not just a welcome diversion for a few hours. Go in expecting little and be nicely surprised, not the other way around.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Afterglow", Jeffrey Byron(Jonny Lee Miller) is a young executive who enjoys taking breaks walking on the ledge of his building. His wife, Marianne(Lara Flynn Boyle), is ovulating and desperately wants to get pregnant but Jeffrey is not obliging. Luckily, she still needs some work done on her home which requires a handyman, Lucky(Nick Nolte), who was recommended to her. Aside from repairing homes, Lucky also seems to be having sex with most of the housewives in the greater Montreal area, with the exception of his own wife, Phyllis(Julie Christie), a former B-movie actress.(Apparently, they have an open marriage under which Lucky can have sex with other women, just as long as he sleeps in his own bed.)[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Afterglow" is a very uneven movie about consequences and how women are taken for granted in our society. But there is little real drama to speak of and the extraneous subplots do not help. Luckily, writer-director Alan Rudolph's horrible comedic instincts do not come into play. Nick Nolte has rakish charm to spare and Julie Christie does an excellent job in deftly avoiding playing a caricature. Lara Flynn Boyle starts out at awful but gets better as the movie goes on. Jonny Lee Miller simply comes off as flat.[/font]
