Plot Summary
The appropriately named Lucky Mann (Nick Nolte) is a contractor equally handy at repairs and seduction. The latest lonely housewife to succumb to his charms is Marianne (Lara Flynn Boyle), childless and unhappy with her marriage to business-obsessed Jeffrey (Jonny Lee Miller). When Jeffrey coincidentally becomes enraptured by Lucky's wife, the fading former starlet Phyllis (Julie Christie), the four get caught in a tangled-up love quadrangle that reignites their tired marriages.

  • The plot to this point could be the stuff of soap opera, but there's always something askew in an Alan Rudolph film, unexpected notes and touches that maintain a certain ironic distance while permitting painful flashes of human nature to burst through. show more

  • Nick Nolte gives a superb performance and Julie Christie is positively incandescent. show more

  • At his best, as he is here, Rudolph is always able to locate the emotional reality inside the dream. [26Dec1997 Pg53] show more
