Movie Description ~ Delicately balancing a young man's coming-of-age with a married couple's experience of trauma and loss, this adaptation of John Irving's A WIDOW FOR ONE YEAR compares with THE CIDER HOUSE RULES as a successful and faithful adaptation of the popular author's work. The film details a summer of trial separation between husband and wife Ted (Jeff Bridges) and Marion (Kim Basinger), whose union was shattered by the loss of their two sons. Though they have one remaining daughter (Elle Fanning), Ted--a popular author--hires a greenhorn writing assistant, a young man named Eddie (Jon Foster). Expecting to learn writing from a master, Eddie is little more than a glorified chauffeur for his accomplished idol. However, Eddie receives some useful lessons in manhood from the beautiful yet emotionally distant Marion, as an obsessive crush blossoms into passionate first love. While the family's scenic estate in the Hamptons provides an illusion of contentment, the tension between Ted, Marion, and Eddie only builds. Meanwhile Eddie struggles to understand the reasons for the family's painful disintegration.
