| Rosanna Arquette gives an adorable performance
Wendy (Arquette) loves to read and doesn't put her current book down at the supermarket, on the bus, or even at work on occasion. Her favorites, of course, are romance novels with gallant and intriguing men. However, Wendy is married to Ronnie, one of the most prosaic of all gentlemen. He is a workaholic who doesn't even return home on the night of their anniversary. Wendy is miffed. When she meets a stranger at the supermarket, she falls victim to his advances. But, does Wendy really want excitement or security? Arquette gives an adorable performance as the working housewife without enough serendipity in her existence. Ronnie is a likable dolt and the mystery man exudes charm in every pore. The Australian setting should please viewers who like exotic locales. Although not a blue ribbon winner by any means, Almost has a sweetness and fantastical quality that is infectious. For those who love romance novels themselves, this film will be your cup of tea.
