Modern take on gender roles

A well made TV movie with social relevance and two very good performances from Lorraine Bracco and Martin Donovan as the feuding Raphaels, whose marriage eventually breaks down amid jealousy and bitterness. This is very much a modern tale that appeals to the new generation of successful female workers and their less than successful husbands struggling to redefine and regain their masculinity. Bracco's Clare Raphael is the successful businesswoman while her husband played by Donovan flounders as his role as principal breadwinner wilts. Donovan portrays the jealous husband with a forlorn conviction and thankfully he doesn't ham up his portrayal. Bracco is the standout and she drags this story up from its TV origins into something far more profound. The story does not have the requisite happy ending but instead is more realistic in its conclusion. An engrossing, watchable fable on modern marriage and the changing roles of men and women in the family.

Great actor, sloppy script

I caught this movie by chance 5 minutes into the beginning, and I stayed because of beautiful Lorraine Bracco's impeccable passionate performance. She is one of many underappreciated actors in Hollywood. I expected the same of Martin Donovan. Throughout the movie I kept waiting for him to reveal something more than this strangely lacklustre, almost wooden performance, especially because he had made such a drastic move by turning his wife out of their house literally overnight. His performance did not give me any clues to his personality, but knowing and liking Mr.Donovan, I kept waiting till the end. The script did not provide anything and in the end it just peters out. It's a pity because it's such an everyday issue, most of us have been in that place at some point of our lives, but only one of the scenes with the children was really outstanding. I gave it 5 points only for Ms.Bracco!
