Director: Arie Posin
Starring: Annette Bening, Ed Harris
Face Of Love is an exceptional love story starring Annette Bening and Ed Harris, which will intrigue and mystify, leaving audiences satisfied but emotionally drained.
Nikki (Bening) widowed for five years and destined for a life of solitude, has a second chance at love when she meets Tom (Harris), her husband's identical double. Keeping him a secret from her family and friends she fantasizes of continued love with the man of her dreams. But as the romance flourishes, so does her obsession that Tom is her deceased husband Garret.
Does Nikki love Tom or the image of the man he looks like?
Reality and fantasy clash and unleashes a finale which will leave audiences stunned and incurable romantics may feel somewhat cheated and disillusioned with the unpredictable turn of events.
Performances are powerful & effective, notably from Bening who brilliantly conveys the feelings of torment & melancholy after her husband is so tragically removed from her life. Robin Williams returns to the screen in a small but important role as Roger, the likable neighbour who wants more than just friendship from Nikki.
Exquisitely filmed with a beautiful and enveloping score, this psychological romantic drama thrives from its originality and will doubtlessly move the most insensitive of viewers. JAKE
