Alec Baldwin, Michael Mailer
A Best-selling novelist, Bill Oakland (Alec Baldwin), loses his wife and his sight in a vicious car crash. Devastated, lonely and bitter, the accomplished writer and professor spends his days trying to cope with his condition. When socialite Suzanne Dutchman (Demi Moore) is forced into community service as a plea bargain for being associated with her husband's insider trading, their lives intersect. Reading to him weekly in his room at the rehab center, Suzanne concedes the brilliance behind Bill's angry facade, while in this intimate setting, he must engage with this strong, fiery woman, who is clearly his match.
