Director: Alan Rudolph Composer: Mark Isham With: Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Lara Flynn Boyle
Jeffrey Byron, an ambitious man in his twenties from Montreal, is a corporate executive with a large company and fate smiles on him. However he is too conceited to see that his wife Marianne is not feeling very happy. Marianne looks after their luxury apartment, but above all wants to have a baby. On the other side of town we become acquainted with the rocky marriage between the taciturn odd-job man Lucky and his wife Phyllis. She was once a B-film actress and now spends her time watching her old films on video. As with the Byrons, sex is low down the list. When Lucky has to do some odd jobs in the Byron house, Marianne immediately falls for this charming guy. In the meantime, Jeffrey has met Phyllis and falls in love with this more mature lady.
