"...Ms. Redgrave conveys her character's combustible mixture of desperation, bitterness and pride with a scary fervor..."
A fortuneteller predicts a break up for one of three couples at a New Jersey Halloween party. Harry Connick, Jr. and Lynn Redgrave star as May-December lovers who host a party for their tenants and neighbors. Monica Keena and Dylan Bruno are their upstairs renters, struggling young punk musicians. Cindy Crawford and Jamey Sheridan are the couple next door, whose ambitious dreams of life--across the river--in New York City threaten to destroy their relationship. Two ghosts (William Hurt and Samantha Mathis) haunt the couples while slowly forming their own unique friendship. Eccentric fortuneteller and palm reader (Tyne Daly) is the only person who can see and hear the ghosts. She reads in Redgrave's palm the unique "simian line," a horizontal fold crossing the palm, which knits the heart and head lines into one. Writer-director Linda Yellen shot the film on location in Weehawken, a picturesque New Jersey town on the Hudson River in the shadow of New York City. The stellar cast is led expertly by Redgrave whose portrayal of a mature woman in love with a much younger man is complex and multi-layered. Talk Show host Montel Williams is executive producer of the film.
