"Absolutely not to be missed! Inventive, dryly hilarious, a real find!" -Los Angeles Times

Prepare yourself for a "touching fantasy" (Entertainment Today) from writer-director Anthony Minghella (The Talented Mr. Ripley)! Brilliantly weaving a passionate tale of life, love and death - though not necessarily in that order - this "lovely, original comedy" (The New Yorker) starring Alan Rickman (Galaxy Quest), Juliet Stevenson (Emma) and Michael Maloney (Looking for Richard) is a "triumph" (The Village Voice) that will leave you touched by its magic!

Nina (Stevenson), a charming, warm-hearted young woman, is dealing with the sudden death of her beloved husband, Jamie. Just when she can no longer bear the pain of her loss, Jamie (Rickman) suddenly appears in her living room - back from the dead! At first his presence in her life seems too good to be true, but when Nina unexpectedly meets Mark (Maloney), a part-time magician and full-time good guy who turns her world upside down, Nina is faced with the ultimate decision. Will she hold on to her past? Or let new love guide her into the future?
