Playing by HeartDirector: Willard Carroll, Gillian Anderson, Angelina Jolie, Madeleine Stowe
Sophomore writer/director Willard Carroll weaves together an all-star cast in interlocking stories about finding love in Los Angeles. The film's theme is spoken by young club-hopper Joan (Angelina Jolie). Taken by the mysterious Keenan (Ryan Phillippe), she tells him that "talking about love" is like "dancing about architecture" (the original title until the studio thought it would be confused with Dancing at Lughnasa), meaning speech is not the medium to adequately express the details of love. They all try, anyway. Others up for the dance include a TV cooking-show hostess (Gena Rowlands) and her husband (Sean Connery) who still fight over his one brief infidelity 25 years earlier; two lovers (Madeline Stowe, Anthony Edwards) who discuss their unhappy marriages; and a theater director (Gillian Anderson) and her architect, Mr. Right (Jon Stewart). Also searching are Dennis Quaid, Nastassja Kinski and Patricia Clarkson. For a familial sort of love, there's Ellen Burstyn as the estranged mother to her son (Jay Mohr) dying of AIDS.

Great movie with a star-studded cast!
I think that this movie is very good. It was like reading a book the way the writer portrayed the characters. They also did very good on who they chose to be in it. Anyone who really likes romance/drama should watch this movie.
One of my all time favourite movies! Excellent casting, funky music, an interesting and devoloped plot, and a twist at the end! Five Stars!
