    After a while, it begins to feel like a confused comedy: How to explain to the neighbours that your dead husband has moved back home?

    An almost offensively "tasteful" dud that remains irritatingly on the surface, more alive to the set design than the characters' motivations.

    Bening and Harris are great actors, and they fill their roles as completely as they can, given the limitations of the soggy and implausible script by Matthew McDuffie and director Arie Posin.

    This is a Lifetime Movie of the Week with an A-list cast. Annette Bening meets a man (Ed Harris) who looks just like her dead husband (also played by Harris). Nothing that happens next is in any way original. She's too glum for too long and he's too perfect, patient and understanding. While the actors create a compelling couple, the painfully predictable plot, uninspired script and lackluster direction undermine any hope of making this movie special (except maybe a Special Movie Event on cable).

    This movie is worth seeing because of the tour-de-force performance by Annette Bening. You will forgive the hard-to-believe premise and just soak up the authenticity of this complex real character brought to life with such depth and complexity. Ms. Bening is truly one of the greatest living actors of our time. It's also refreshing to see a movie about actual grown-ups, without CG, explosions or bodily function jokes.
