Jordan's adaptation of Greene's famous novel, set in a moody 1946 London, tells the tale of novelist Maurice Bendrix (Fiennes). After a random meeting with the husband of his ex-lover Sarah (Moore), Bendrix is once again drawn into her web, trying to discover for himself the reason she aborted their relationship two years before. The reintroduction of Maurice into Sarah's life fills her with confusion, forcing her to come to terms with her past decision, and challenging her to objectively deal with her deteriorating health. Jordan (THE CRYING GAME) definitely turns up the steam for this one.
