A simple story,
This review is from: Intersection [DVD]  (DVD)
It may be a remake, but not having seen the original, I can't comment on that.
I thought that Stone was fantastic in this. I think she and Richard Gere have great chemistry and the choice of Lolita Davidovich provides an excellent contrast to Stone.
It's a simple story. You see (via flashbacks) how the marriage dissolved (almost from the start) and yet at times you see the closeness of the couple (at the museum opening, and in the office). They clearly have a connection. You honestly think that they could work it out and that they both want to. He's confused and is torn between, let's face it, two strong, independent women.
I also think Martin Landau is great as the 'family friend' and the daughter, whilst all American and slightly irritating, is played maturely by the young actress.
I don't think this was meant to be a blockbuster. It's brilliant casting, great shooting, and a superb soundtrack are added to a very simple human story that happens every day.
Of course the film is very much centred around Gere's character. But the ending is the most significant. Two women who know that they have been fighting for the same thing face each other and both have a choice of imparting some information if they choose to, knowing it will upset/hurt the other. It says a lot about compassion and female solidarity.
