The life of bored insurance salesman John Nolan (Jeff Goldblum) changes forever when he witnesses the death of an ex-con. Feeling his fate inexplicably bound to the encounter, or just trying to escape the monotony of his own existence, Nolan assumes the identity of the deceased man. He begins investigating the man's life, discovering that he was planning on meeting a pen pal named Lucy (Anne Heche). Posing as the dead man, Nolan meets Lucy and begins a relationship with her.

  • One of those go-out-for-coffee-afterward-and-talk-about-it movies, and those are always welcome. show more

  • Goldblum, who has made psychological confusion his actor's stock-in-trade, gives Nolan's behavior just enough credibility to keep his quest alive for us, and Heche gives a delightfully unaffected performance as Lucy. show more

  • Begins exceptionally well. Indeed, for at least its first half it's an unusually thoughtful, admirably underplayed piece of work of disorienting, rather harsh realism that builds its mysteries in pleasurably oblique and unpredictable ways. show more
