This is another fantastic movie that had slip through the cracks of greatness due to uncomfortable content. A few recent films have treated the dysfunction attendant upon the death of a child to a loving couple. A movie or two has also touched on the sexual relationship between an older woman and a younger man. `Door in the Floor,' based on John Irving's novel `Widow for a Year,' combines both subjects in a sometimes disturbing, always absorbing screenplay that has a superlative performance by Jeff Bridges and an excellent turn by Kim Basinger.

Since `The Graduate,' the possibility in films of a younger man/older woman theme has become as acceptable as the traditional reverse. In writer/director Tod Williams' (`The Adventures of Sebastian Cole') `Door in the Floor,' the young 16-year-old Eddie is played by Jon Foster (`Life as a House') with an annoying lack of charisma and animation. However, Kim Basinger as his love interest, Marion, a mother who has lost 2 sons about his age in an auto accident, for which she feels some responsibility, appropriately lacks animation because of her trauma, a kind of `Stepford' mother exorcising her demon by sleeping with a son's surrogate. That acting is believable even if her `method' may be thinking of her combat with a notorious Baldwin boy. If you are sensitive to such things, the movie deserves its R rating. There is male nudity, from the rear, and full frontal female nudity. The language is about what one would expect from an R rated movie.

`The Door In the Floor' is memorable for two big reasons. 1). Jeff Bridges due to his performance and 2).The very last scene, you will realize the full import of Ted Cole's world-view, and you'll see the treatment of his character in the movie in a completely new light. The laughs are thrown in at just the right moments, and the ending is as true as it gets. Sometimes, movies don't get hard-to-face endings right this film delivers it just fine.

This film has been adapted from John Irving's novel 'A Widow for One Year', living in the beach community of East Hampton, New York in 1958 and chronicles one pivotal summer in the lives of famous children's book author Ted Cole (Jeff Bridges) and his wife Marion (Kim Basinger). Their once-great marriage has been strained by tragedy. Her resulting despondency and his subsequent infidelities have prevented the couple from confronting a much-needed change in their relationship. Eddie O'Hare, the young man Ted hires to work as his summer assistant, is the couple's unwitting yet willing pawn and, ultimately, the catalyst in the transformation of their lives. The film exlplores the complexities of love in both its brightest and darkest corners.

I knew absolutely nothing about The Door In The Floor before seeing it, apart from its two main actors - which was enough to persuade me.
Adapted from one part of John Irving novel, it basically tells the story of a marriage breakdown, precipitated by an earlier family tragedy and focusses on one summer, when Ted Cole (Bridges as a children's author) employs a young, naive student who is a would-be writer to be his assistant.
Bridges, as always, lends his considerable talent to a role that requires him to be an eccentric ass. Basinger is equally strong as the tortured and fragile wife, still coming to terms with the accident.
Where the movie works is in the calibre of the acting, with all the main actors showing respect and understanding of the issues.
Where it doesn't work is with the Mrs Robinson-esque plot strand between Kim Basinger's fragile mother and the naive teenage student. Although this clearly is a symptom of the marriage breakdown, it detracts from the real issue, which is Bridges and Basinger's destruction as a happily married couple.
A thoughtful film, but one that doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts.

Bewitched by positive reviews on here and on Rotten Tomatoes, I bought this and watched it last night. I thought it was going to be like the magnificent Cement Garden, a deep, psychological study of three people and a romantic triangle. But it certainly wasn't. I sat down and endured it. It was tedious, poorly acted, lacked any depth whatsoever, the characters were cardboard, the photography was second-rate, the music was inappropriate and there were several inappropriate slapstick scenes so I kept checking the case to see if it was a comedy but there was no mention of comedy - so those unfunny slapstick scenes were most peculiar. I only sat through it to the bland ending because I had paid for the bloody thing. One of the worst films I have ever had to sit through. Perhaps it is aimed at children or teenagers? I am 56.

By far the most inspiring movie I have seen in several years:
As a 30 year guy, I still see Kim Basinger as the supreme feminity. She plays fairly well but more importantly vehicules the sensual drive of 9 1/2 weeks with a somewhat more mature touch (as I like to see myself a little more mature compared to 15-20 years ago). Jeff Bridges...hmmm the dude in person...what can I say, he is majestic. Some people want to become president, others writers, some just get lucky in love... well I wouldn't mind all that above but I would definately settle with being the character in this movie and live in that that house. Outdoor shower and squash court in barn... that's as close as paradise as one gets while still alive. See it, like or dislike it but I guarantee that you want be indifferent.
