”The English Patient”’s Kristin Scott Thomas finds herself in another adulterous imbroglio. She’s a penniless widow in pre-WWII fascist Florence who weighs her romantic options after a wealthy but passionless gentleman proposes. Sean Penn stars as a brash, married American who proves tempting. Director Philip Haas (”Angels & Insects”) adapted the film from W. Somerset Maugham’s 1941 novella.
