From Iceland — Door in the Floor

Door in the Floor

Based on the first third of the John Irving novel A Widow for One Year, Door in the Floor (written and directed by Tod Williams) fails to live up to other Irving adaptations, like Cider House Rules. Jeff Bridges gives a strong performance as the philandering children’s author Ted Cole, who uses women to ease the pain of his family’s tragedy. The Mrs. Robinson relationship that develops between Cole’s sultry, yet grieving wife Marion (Kim Basinger) and the young writer’s assistant Eddie O’Hare (Jon Foster) has few sparks.
