Julianne Moore (Hannibal, Boogie Nights) and Dennis Quaid (The Rookie, Frequency) star in this seductive story of a seemingly perfect family, and the forbidden desires that threaten to tear them apart.
Cathy Whitaker (Moore) has it all-a lovely home, two wonderful children and a handsome husband (Quaid), who is successfully climbing the corporate ladder. But Cathy's idyllic existence is just an illusion, and she is eventually forced to choose between living a lie or following her heart.
Academy Award® nominee Moore "is a vision," declared Rex Reed, and he called Quaid's performance "the best of his career," in this stunning drama hailed by the New York Post as "one of the year's best.'
