Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Five years after the death of her beloved husband Garrett (Ed Harris), Nikki (Annette Bening) meets a man who seems his exact duplicate. Not only does this stranger possess the same deeply lined face and startling blue eyes, he also shares Garrett's kindness, humor, and passion for art. And yet he is a stranger. Romance blossoms between Nikki and this alluring doppelgänger, but she can't bring herself to tell him the truth about what drew her to him. So she hides her photos and prevents him from meeting friends and family. Still, she can't resist taking him to all the old haunts. It isn't a question of if the truth will come out, but when. Arie Posin directs this emotionally thorny drama about how we cope with loss, live in the moment and ultimately move forward.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The only thrill, and it's worth the price of admission, is Bening.
Rotten: A weak-tea version of "Vertigo" in which contrivances abound.
Rotten: Bening and Harris are great actors, and they fill their roles as completely as they can, given the limitations of the soggy and implausible script by Matthew McDuffie and director Arie Posin.
Fresh: Old age, romance, grief, delusion and desperation all intersect in "The Face of Love," a far-fetched tale that nevertheless manages to be affecting.
Waste Of Time and Money
Terrible, terrible movie, besides being too predictable. Cheesy story, bad direction and poor performances from the cast. A sad way for Mr. Williams to end his career with this one.
A very touching movie!
A rich, heavy, beautiful story. It will hurt a little to watch it; but it's worth the journey. Don't watch it when you are already feeling heartbroken though, or it will do you in!
