Five years after the death of her beloved husband Garrett (Ed Harris), Nikki (Annette Bening) meets Tom, a man who seems to be Garrett s exact duplicate. Not only does Tom possess the same physical characteristics, but he also shares Garrett's kindness, humor, and passion for art. And yet he is a stranger. As romance blossoms between Nikki and Tom, she finds she can't bring herself to tell him the truth about what drew her to him. But as their relationship progresses, it becomes not a question of if the truth will come out, but when.

Sad and depressing film about a lonely widow who seemingly can’t help herself from stalking and seducing her late husband’s doppelgänger. Lying and manipulating to get what she claims she “needs” isn’t the face of “love” but of selfish obsession, which the phony ending does little to resolve. Good acting but miserable and annoying plot.

Loved this movie, Annette Bening and Ed Harris. are both great actors in this. They say we all have a Double and I think that this is true as I saw someone similar to myself once.

Real love, real death. real grief. Afterwards, the fantasy is more real than reality. Films often try to capture this reality/fantasy contrast (Mulholland Drive, etc.) This is the first time I got it. Annette Benning. The power of love-- it's real. and it makes us do very strange things

I kept waiting to feel something other than mild interest throughout the movie. My expectations were high based on Annette Bening being the lead actress but all I could see is that she was told to do ___ and then ___ and ___ and that she herself couldn't get into the role.

Here's the thing the whole relationship started on dishonest and when honesty came to the forefront it dissolved except for the treasured moments of Love (one-sided).

Engaging movie with rock solid performances from Harris and Benning. A love story so over the top that it transcends fantasy and lands back to reality.

What power...LOVE!

A very selfish self obsessed woman who can,t see who she hurts. I found it sickening....even if the acting was good.

I was hoping for more of a plot twist, but it was still worth watching. I had forgotten that Robin Williams was in this movie...talk about seeing ghosts....

I watched this movie, worth to watch story and acting.

I stumbled across this because it costars Robin Williams and what a treat it turned out to be. This is a very powerful drama. The central theme is spousal grief but this is a low key yet intense film. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good emotional drama to watch. A great sleeper film. Maybe it depends upon individual tastes but I got this on a whim and wound up engrossed.
