We’ve all had trouble getting closure on past relationships, but what if the person you need closure from is dead? Laura Linney stars as Louise Harrington in this spiritual love story about a woman who believes her dead lover is reincarnated in an 18 year old seeking admission at Columbia University School of Fine Arts, where she just happens to be in charge of admissions. Is the young man really her lover or is Louise projecting so she can have something she never recovered from losing? As usual, Laura Linney is great (and fantastically costumed) in this simple but intriguing film. Gabriel Byrne costars as her confused ex-husband. [us, 2005]
