I saw this movie a few years back and watched it again last night.
To me it personifies extraordinary circumstances.
Life in the idyll of success and love and internal conflict.
Loss of self and all that identity has to offer. Redemption in the face of death. Ultimately friendship and love and finding one's self.
I watched the 2002 Miramax version with Heath Ledger, Wes Bently and Kate Hudson.
