As he copes with the death of his fiancée, a young man befriends her parents and must figure out what he wants out of life.
Saccharine melodrama has a good cast and is well made, but the multiple stories of love and loss have all been told better before.
Halliwell*: "Over-sweet account of how various individuals cope with loss; it has its moments, though they are not as many as one would hope."
Maltin**1/2: "Delicate material is handled with skill and good humor, until the young hero meets a woman who's too good to be true, and the story's credibility is derailed. Salvaged, to a great degree, by superior acting from Hoffman and Sarandon."

After the deaths of three children suspected to be killed by wolves, a writer is hired by the mother of a missing six-year-old boy to track down and locate their son in the Alaskan wilderness.
Atmospherically dark and violent drama with great landscape cinematography and excellent cast ultimately disappoints by refusing to give any explanation or sense to what's going on.
