My second love story of the day, and one of my favorite movies of the festival.
What's not to love with a cast that included Helen Hunt, Bette Midler, Colin Firth, and Matthew Broderick. Each was given a meaty enough role. It's all about Helen's life and the twists and turns in it.
Not wishing to give any of it away, I do have to say that the very last scene -- which all American movies seem to want to have so they can tell us what happened to all the characters after the part of the story we've just seen -- was entirely superfluous and stupid.
