A magical love story for everyone,
This review is from: The Family Man [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a truly wonderful film that contains love, humour, suspense, and even a hint of tragedy and despair.
Nic Cage plays an upper class, fast-moving, hard-talking, rich business man whose life is turned on it's head in the most unlikely way. Having lived his life believing he has everything a man could want he is offerred a glimpse into an alternate reality that he is forced to live out. A reality of a family, with a wonderful loving wife, 2 gorgeous children, and friends of the highest order - all the things he's never had. The plot then unravels as Cage slowly adapts to his new life without really wanting to. As the ending nears he realises something that he was neglecting his whole life.
Both Cage and Leoni put in superb performances that draw you into their cosy life and the tribulations as Cage realises what's happening to him. It even throws in a few laughs too.
Instantly one of my favourites, treat yourself!
