    Cutie-pie Basinger finally gets out of her stereotype to play a real character. Great performance by her. But it doesn't float the film.

  1. Like the star's acting, the movie is bland, full of good intentions and generally as stiff as a fireplace poker.
  2. Consist of little more than people arguing or clambering in and out of dusty Land Rovers.

    Though beautifully acted by Basinger (everyone else is relegated to a supporting role), there's a strange vagueness to much of this sumptuous, stunningly photographed melodrama.
