Overview

Three women living in Toronto find themselves confronting emotional crises regarding the men in their lives in this drama. Olivia Sophia Loren is a woman who spends her days looking after her husband, John Pete Postlethwaite, who is confined to a wheelchair. Olivia has long aspired to a career as an artist, but John, not emotionally generous, refuses to hear of her wasting her time on such things. However, Olivia does find encouragement from an unlikely source -- Max Gérard Depardieu, an eccentric French gardener. Natalia Mira Sorvino is a news photographer who, while on assignment in Angola, took a memorable portrait of a crying child orphaned by war. Her father, Alexander Klaus-Maria Brandauer, also a well-known photojournalist, is understandably proud of Natalia when her photo is used on the cover of a major news magazine, but she is haunted by the knowledge that while she made the child famous, she couldn't save its life. And Catherine Deborah Kara Unger is a woman whose father, Alan Malcolm McDowell, beat her mother to death when she was young. Catherine has never been able to resolve her hatred of her father, and when Alan is released from prison, she's willing to abandon her husband, her children, and her career as a musician to track him down and kill him, unable to accept the notion that he's a changed man. Between Strangers was directed by Edoardo Ponti, whose mother happens to be Sophia Loren; it marks the first time the two have worked together.
