The Face of Love


Annette Bening plays a woman coming to grips with losing the love of her life (Ed Harris) to a tragic accident.  Five years later, while still grieving his passing, she happens across a man who looks exactly like him.  But can they sustain a relationship of any sort without her thinking of him as her dead husband?  Robin Williams costars as her caring next door neighbor and Jess Weixler plays her daughter.  Unfortunately, considering the impressive cast it isn't as good as I'd hoped.  It's melodrama that tugs at your heart a little bit, but is also more than a little creepy.

'The Face of Love' is now available on Video on Demand.

Grade: B

Who is this movie for?  An older crowd with empathy for the loss of love.
