Story


Five years after the death of her beloved husband Garrett (Ed Harris), Nikki (Annette Bening) meets a man who seems his exact duplicate. Not only does this stranger possess the same deeply lined face and startling blue eyes, he also shares Garrett's kindness, humor, and passion for art. And yet he is a stranger. Romance blossoms between Nikki and this alluring doppelganger, but she can't bring herself to tell him the truth about what drew her to him. So she hides her photos and prevents him from meeting friends and family. Still, she can't resist taking him to all the old haunts. It isn't a question of if the truth will come out, but when. Arie Posin directs this emotionally thorny drama about how we cope with loss, live in the moment and ultimately move forward.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..attractive and nuanced, they give The Face of Love all they've got and then some..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..not everything needs to be spelled out, of course, but for a film to be effective - and affective -..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..melodrama often risks the ridiculous to achieve the sublime, and though this unabashedly earnest tearjerker doesn't completely transcend its narrative absurdities, it's enough of a distinctively odd duck to keep you engaged..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
