A rueful road trip following a wealthy middle-aged lothario who strikes out on a cross-country odyssey upon receiving an anonymous letter informing him that he may in fact have a 19-year-old son. Bill Murray, then in the thick of his career renaissance, imbues this aging Don Juan with a slowly blooming regret as he revisits his former lovers, played by Sharon Stone, Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, and Tilda Swinton, in search of the truth, discovering instead only the full measure of his loss. A rich character study and, incidentally, a keen-eyed look at contemporary America, with a climax that counts as among the most moving passages in Jarmusch’s work.
