Full Cast & Crew
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Heritage House Inn. Originally the hotel was New England clapboard in design but all of the accommodations have been completely renovated. Loved the spa "zen" renovations. Our large room was part of a building that contains other accommodations. The sound proofing is excellent as was the view of the Mendocino coast and ocean from our room. Nicely renovated bungalow rooms with updated bathrooms complete with rain shower and good shower products. The scent of fresh lavender fills the air.
The screenplay by Bernard Slade is based on his play of the same title. The film stars Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn. They have a sexual tryst, then agree to meet once a year to rekindle the sparks they experienced at their first meeting, despite the fact that both are happily married with six children between them. They discuss their spouses, Harry and Helen. Over the course of the next 26 years, they develop an emotional intimacy deeper than what one would expect to find between two people meeting for a clandestine relationship just once a year. During the time they spend with each other, they discuss births, deaths -including George's son Michael dying in Vietnam , which changes George politically - and the marital problems each experiences at home, while they adapt themselves to the social changes affecting their lives. At their meeting in , George tells Doris that his wife, Helen, died of cancer earlier in the year, and that Helen revealed to a friend that she had known of the affair for ten years, but never told George she knew.
