Following the death of her husband, a college poetry professor (Elizabeth Perkins) finds comfort and support in the company of her sister, best friend, and former stepmother. But it's the attention lavished by a sexy housepainter they've dubbed "Valentino" (Jon Bon Jovi) that has the greatest effect, not only on the young widow, but on the lives of all four women. Based on Ellen Simon's semi-autobiographical play, this winning seriocomedy co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Whoopi Goldberg. 105 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
