A story of love and obsession. A young radio personality who, after her mother dies, discovers she had been having a love affair for 15 years. Now she finds herself recreating her mother’s romance by getting involved with a married man.
Director Amy Holden Jones’ R-rated romance drama, a Roger Corman production, was about obsession and adultery. The tagline was:
“Sometimes It’s Right To Do the Wrong Thing”
A couple involved in a passionate love affair (“I want you to want me”) were:
Anna Winter (Jamie Lee Curtis in a serious film role), an unmarried San Francisco DJ and radio personality
Oliver Andrews (James Keach), an older married, wealthy photographer
She was encouraged to pursue him after reading about the ‘double life’ of her mother’s extra-marital affair in some poetic and emotional ‘love letters’ (dated 1966 and signed “Joseph”) that she had found after her mother’s death, recounting a love affair that lasted for 15 years.
Anna began to recreate her mother’s own indiscretions in her own love affair.
