Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Veteran Canadian filmmaker Anne Wheeler spins this lighthearted romantic comedy about finding love in odd places. Jackie York (Wendy Crewson) is middle-aged author whose books regularly top the bestseller lists but whose romantic life consists mostly of bad choices from the cutout bin. Though the odd male groupie entertains her now and again, Jackie finds herself particularly interested in a fledgling writer whom she's been corresponding with online. Intelligent, witty, and very talented, this mysterious man seems to be everything she has always looked for in a man. The only trouble is that the guy, Patrick McKeating (Joe Cobden), is all of twenty years old. Though her first reaction is one of fear, Jackie's initial reservations give way to passion as the two slide into her large hot tub. While Jackie is more than happy in private, she has lots of qualms about appearing in public with a boyfriend half her age. To make matters worse, her filmmaker ex-boyfriend (Peter Coyote) is snooping around, and asking questions. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival.
