Making a rare adaptation that he didn’t script, Rudolph worked from a Craig Lucas screenplay based on Jane Smiley’s novella The Age of Grief; also unusual for the director is the suburban Westchester setting. Life is good for married-with-children dentists Campbell Scott (who also co-produced) and Hope Davis, but her amateur opera singing leads him to presume unfaithfulness and opens the door to his fantasies of acting out via alter ego Denis Leary.
