Last Updated: Aug 2023

Connie Sumner (Diane Lane) has a loving husband Ed (Richard Gere), a beautiful home, and a wonderful son, but she wants more. When she's approached one day by a handsome stranger, Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez) while trying to hail a taxi, she becomes obsessed with him and eventually starts an affair. But her selfish actions soon catch up with her.

otsoNY Comments: The high winds that whipped through SoHo were created by a large engine. This was later swapped for some large fans after residents complained about the noise of the engine every time it started up.

otsoNY Comments: For reasons unknown, another street in New York was also used for the wind scene, typically close ups of Diane Lane and buildings with window shutters. The place in question was Cortlandt Alley.

otsoNY Comments: Diane Lane runs along Mercer Street towards what looks like a book shop as there is a rack of books cleverly placed outside but in fact, there is no book shop and never has been. The scene quickly cuts to the entrance of The Strand bookstore on Broadway.
