Lightweight romantic comedy about a recently divorced college admissions director (Laura Linney) who becomes involved in a passionate May-December romance with a young artist (Topher Grace) bearing an uncanny resemblance to her dead high school sweetheart. Dealing with issues of longing, loneliness and lost opportunities -- as well as some mystical musings on reincarnation -- the modest Manhattan love story directed by Dylan Kidd has all the elements of a good independent film, including a smart script and a top-notch ensemble, headed by Linney, Marcia Gay Harden and Gabriel Byrne. Yet taken as a whole, the film somehow adds up to less than the sum of its proficient parts. A sexual encounter and a few implied encounters, as well as recurring rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
