Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture and winner of Best Supporting Actress for Geena Davis (TV's "Commander in Chief," "Thelma & Louise"). Starring Davis, Academy Award-winner and Golden Globe-nominee William Hurt ("Syriana," "The Village") and Academy Award- nominee and Golden Globe-winner Kathleen Turner ("War of the Roses," "Body Heat") in a romantic comedy-drama about a reluctant travel writer whose world is turned upside-down when his wife leaves him. Co-starring Bill Pullman ("The Grudge," "Igby Goes Down"), Emmy and Golden Globe- nominee Ed Begley, Jr. ("St. Elsewhere"), David Ogden Stiers ("Lilo & Stitch," "M*A*S*H,") and Amy Wright ("Crossing Delancey," "The Dear Hunter"). Based on Anne Tyler's best-selling novel and directed by Academy Award-winner Lawrence Kasdan ("Dreamcatcher," "The Big Chill"), Siskel and Ebert call this "one of the year's very best films.... Great performances by William Hurt and Geena Davis... a masterpiece." Judith Crist hails it as "enchanting... a sophisticated mix of tears and laughter."
