Sporting a platinum blonde 'do, McAdams joins another classy cast for an ultimately disappointing movie. Harry (Chris Cooper) is having an affair with Kay (McAdams) and he decides that he'd rather kill his wife (Patricia Clarkson) than humiliate her.
Enter Richard (Pierce Brosnan), the kind of smoothie Harry shouldn't be letting anywhere near his mistress. Feeling stilted and false, the movie fails to make good on its intriguing premise. Romantic interest? Widow Kay is something of an older man magnet.
