    Sorvino can't pass for a man, but that's beyond the point in this rarefied situation. She's beautiful and she can usually act, but here the only convincing thing she projects is fatigue from running around the garden all day.

    It's the kind of thing that Shakespeare might have written if he had undergone a frontal lobotomy.
  3. 25
    A triumph of misguided moviemaking, starting with a grotesquely miscast Mira Sorvino, who arguably gives the worst performance ever by an Oscar winner.
  4. 20
    All icing, with a few crumbs devoted to the notion that it is futile to resist the heart's desires.
