This gorgeous romantic fantasy stars Brad Pitt as a mysterious stranger who visits tycoon Anthony Hopkins and tells him his time is almost up.

Then he hangs around long enough to fall for Hopkins' daughter Claire Forlani, while Hopkins embarks in a last-ditch bid to save his business.

At more than three hours long, this movie sometimes seems to last an eternity but the first half, particularly, is full of surprises and there are some killer lines at the end that raise the tears.

The two sparring stars make a great double act and Marcia Gay Harden is a standout as the lesser-loved of Hopkins' two daughters.
