Keanu Reeves stars as Nelson, a San Francisco ad man who stays just busy enough to keep from noticing his loneliness. But one autumn, Nelson gets involved with a free spirit named Sara (Charlize Theron), who turns his world upside down. Sara, however, insists that their romance can last only one month. Is she afraid of commitment? Or is she hiding a terrible secret? Frank Langella co-stars in this romantic drama from Irish director Pat O'Connor.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that seeing Sara's health worsen is upsetting, as is the scene in which she asks Nelson to let her go. It's painful to watch Sara's young neighbor Abner anxiously look for a father figure. Sara's neighbors are transvestites. Mature themes include death and terminal illness. Occasional mild to moderate profanity. We see Nelson in bed with his girlfriend. Mentions of hookers, flashers, and dominatrixes. Nelson's ad campaign is sexually suggestive. Lots of passionate kissing, touching, and lovemaking. It's implied that Sara was promiscuous. Sara and Nelson share a bubble bath (no nudity).
