Paul Schrader's "Forever Mine" tells a very compelling story of love, betrayal, and retribution.
A cabana boy (Joseph Fiennes) at a Florida beach resort falls hard for a gorgeous guest (Gretchen Mol) neglected by her wheeler-dealer husband (Ray Liotta).
After a steamy nude scene and a sweet, barefoot date, Fiennes follows her home to New York and declares undying love.
Mol, a good Catholic girl who reads "Madame Bovary", confesses the affair to Liotta.
Being shadier than she realizes, he arranges to have nasty things befall his rival.
Cut to 14 years later Fiennes, long presumed dead, resurfaces to lend his talents (he's become a master criminal) to the now thoroughly corrupt Liotta and see what his beloved is up to.
Fiennes has a new name and a scar on one side of his face, so neither recognizes him.
Gretchen Mol has the ability to communicate almost everything with eyes....
She centers the frame and the film itself
