  • 1991 Sundance Film Festival


This feature debut is the warm and magical story of a woman who is unable to let go of her deceased lover's memory until he returns as a ghost to help her make a new life. The overriding sense of loss and melancholy that imprisons Nina (Juliet Stevenson) reduces her to the status of a recluse in her disaster-afflicted apartment, unable to venture out except to work. But when the impossible happens and Jamie (Alan Rickman) reappears, Nina's joy is overwhelming and happiness returns . . . or does it? Stevenson is marvelous as the bereaved Nina, and Rickman, heretofore known primarily for his sinister roles in Die Hard and Quigley Down Under, is wonderfully charming and intelligent as the not-so ephemeral Jamie. A special thanks to The Samuel Goldwyn Company for making this film available.
