What great performances - so soon after the Academy Awards?! This virtually never happens as it seems the lousy stuff always gets thrown at us earlier in the year! A great character study of a difficult situation - the script could have been better, but the performances given overshadowed that . . . you don't see that very often! It was so great to see Ed Harris again - where has he been? - and looking good! But as always, Annette Benning in another sterling performance! The ending grabbed me and pulled me through the eye of that needle. So glad I went! Surprised its only at one theater in the OC! But that should change very soon! All my friends are anxious to see it! Bravo!!

Acting was wonderful. A little predictable with obvious foreshadowing. Original premise and a few nice twists.

Annette Bening is absolutely amazing and Ed Harris still has that rugged distinguished air about him. (The Face of Love) is the story of a grieving widow who still very much in love with her late husband is shocked to run into a man who looks exactly like him. the movie takes on a Hitchcocktian feel reminiscent of vertigo as Annette tries to keep the knowledge of her husbands resemblance from Harris. For anyone who is a fan of these two amazing actors I would definitely recommend it, but bring your tissues cause the ending left me in tears...

Worthwhile picture for the strong acting performance of Annette Benning. The storyline is a bit hokey and requires some suspension of belief to maintain your interest. Excellent chemistry with Ed Harris.
