Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Bachelor is based on a novel by Austrian author Arthur Schnitzler, of Affairs of Anatol fame. Keith Carradine stars as an unmarried doctor who prefers his will-o-the-wisp existence, avoiding any lasting relationships. Carradine is thrown for a loop when the only person whom he cares about commits suicide. Left with no frame of reference, the doctor is forced to start his life all over again-beginning with his belated sexual initiation. As superb as Carradine is in The Bachelor, his costar Miranda Richardson is absolutely stunning in a dual role. Released in Italy as Mio caro dottor Grasler in 1991, The Bachelor made it to American shores two years later.
