The severely beautiful Saffron Burrows plays some sort of generic New York career woman who receives a terminal cancer diagnosis, is downsized from her job, and gets rejected by a lover — all in the same day. Good grief! To ease her agony, she rents a giant West Village loft and fills it with trendy paraphernalia, maxing out her credit cards. Amy Redford (Robert’s daughter) directed this fuzzy-headed consumerist disease-of-the-week satire. The Guitar is a lark, at best, but when Burrows’ healing indulgence extends to taking on lovers of both sexes, its goofiness acquires a certain hedonistic charm. C+
