Trivia

The closing song in the film as Jane boards the train and leaving her husband Leonard is Jennifer Warnes singing "Famous Blue Raincoat" original written by Leonard Cohen. A line in the song goes: yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair she that you gave it to her. See more »

Quotes

Grandma Eves: You've got to make your own life, one that you love, and you can't be afraid of the time. Time is shiftable. There are moments of my life that I'd trade sixty years to have back again. That's the truth. You know the truth when you find it. It'll come to you like something you've known before rather than something you're learning for the first time.

A waste of a good title.
22 August 2013 | by londonpaulSee all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie, having watched it because I was intrigued by the title -- sometimes titles just hook me right off the bat and make me want to see if the movie lives up to the expectations the title created -- and I enjoy watching Kate Bosworth ever since the Young Americans TV series in the Summer of 2000.

Also, having been to Ischia many years ago, I hoped it would remind me of my sojourn.

From the trailer, I was expecting a gentle romance in a faraway picturesque island between two people who have found each other.

Wrong.

Instead we have a travelogue featuring a woman looking for fun who finds it by having a fling with with a bored college kid. Granted, he is good-looking but she could have picked just about any other kid off the street considering how little chemistry there is between the two. We're not even entirely certain what prompts her to do this considering how much her husband -- in his own way -- loves her, and she must him. I don't think the movie can even be considered romantic fluff because there isn't any fluff. Romantic or otherwise. Or sensuality. We aren't even made to care what happens.

During the movie I wondered to myself what Woody Allen would have done with this.

I was disappointed with the waste of such a good title.
