Directed by Robert Altman, this film is a comedy drama that takes you through a world of carefully choreographed chaos. The screenplay, by Anne Rapp, is quite compelling in that as her characters unravel, there is an unveiling of their complexities. Dr. Sullivan Travis (Richard Gere), has it all: a thriving gynecological practice, a lovely family, good friends. He's moral, hardworking, and considerate of others, so cosmically he's doomed. We witness Dr. T, who is accustomed to being in control at the center of a world of women, as his life careens into chaos.
