|The Door in the Floor|
Adapted from John Irving's best-selling novel, A Widow for One Year
, Tod Williams' finely nuanced drama casts Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger in the roles of Ted and Marion Cole, a couple whose trust in each other has been rent asunder by a tragic death in the family.
A young would-be writer, Eddie O'Hare, is hired by Ted (a famous author) as a research assistant at their isolated home in the Hamptons. Over the course of the summer that unfolds, Eddie becomes both witness to and catalyst in the brittle emotional lives of the Coles.
"The best movie yet made from John Irving's fiction" A.O. Scott, The New York Times
