Passion of Mind | 1999 | PG-13 | - 5.0.3
Demi Moore plays a woman who leads two lives -- one as a mother in France and the other as a literary agent in New York -- and is unable to tell which one is real and which one is a fantasy. Also with Stellan Skarsgård, William Fichtner, Peter Riegert, Sinéad Cusack and Matthew Beisner. [1:45]
- Several instances of sexual innuendo and several kisses, often passionate. Twice, a boy quickly kisses a girl on the cheek. A man and woman kiss passionately, then we see them nude but sheet-covered in bed, presumably post-coitus; he starts kissing her neck, back and side, then they have intercourse (we mostly just hear their heavy breathing and see a close-up of the sheets moving as the camera pans down the bed). Two other sex scenes show a man and woman kissing passionately as well as their pleasured facial expressions; in one of the scenes the man kisses the woman's bare stomach (her chest is covered by a shirt) and we see her hand running up his bare back. A woman wakes up alone in bed, moving as if having intercourse. We see the bare shoulders of a man and woman sitting in a bathtub together and talking, a women wearing a semi-transparent tank top, a shirtless man, and a nude but sheet-covered woman in bed (a clothed man is sitting next to her).
- A girl unsuccessfully tries to rouse a sleeping woman; it's implied that she's dead.
- An anatomical reference, a couple of scatological references, several mild obscenities and an insult.
- Double identity, falling in love, being "analyzed," mother-daughter relationships, being a widow, dreams vs. reality.
- Unresolved issues can manifest themselves in real and peculiar ways.
Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.
We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.
Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
