A remake of the French film LES CHOSES DE LA VIE, INTERSECTION places Vincent Eastman (Richard Gere), a successful architect, between his indifferent, beautiful, aristocratic wife, Sally (Sharon Stone), and his free-spirited lover, Olivia (Lolita Davidovich). Although it seems that Vincent has made a decision to leave Sally for Olivia, he remains emotionally torn, especially when he wonders how a divorce might affect his 12-year-old daughter, Meaghan (Jenny Morrison), with whom he is very close. If Vincent doesn't make a decision soon, he might find himself at a crossroads where he will be forced to make a choice and suffer the cataclysmic consequences. Using flashbacks and, in one climactic scene, beautifully eerie slow-motion camerawork, director Mark Rydell's INTERSECTION brings back the heartwrenching feeling and intricacies of old Hollywood melodramas.
In director Mark Rydell's INTERSECTION, a successful architect whose marriage is on the rocks winds up having an affair that turns into what may be love. He finds himself torn between his beautiful but indifferent wife and his passionate and carefree lover. But his decision may be too late for anyone.
