Between Strangers (2002)
Writer-director Edoardo Ponti's debut feature consists of three stories, each dealing with a different woman's life-altering moment. Sophia Loren (Ponti's real-life mother) is a put-upon wife caring for her ungrateful, wheelchair-bound husband. Next, photographer Mira Sorvino lives in the shadow of her famous dad. And, stressed-out cellist Deborah Kara Unger must deal with the sudden reappearance of her ex-con father. With Pete Postlethwaite, Gerard Depardieu, Malcolm McDowell. 97 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital stereo, Spanish Dolby Digital stereo.
