Random Hearts by Warren AdlerI read this book because I had watched the movie, Random Hearts, this book was too tragic. Their spouses died in a plane crash, discovering facts that suggest they were having an affair, the surviving spouses then go into a spiral of self destruct.(Blaming themselves) The two innocents, the dog and the child were sent away, why not give the dog to the child who was being raised by the grandparents? Why give up the child that earlier in the book the wife was devoted to? Too difficult to finish the book, it was too sad.
The movie was better as the characters moved past their anger and into grief in a more postive way.
Random Hearts f'u'l'l ..'m'o'v'ie' - Harrison Ford
Sign in. Alex Borstein , RuPaul , and other stars at the Emmys answer our fans' burning questions. Watch now. An ugly duckling having undergone a remarkable change, still harbors feelings for her crush: a carefree playboy, but not before his business-focused brother has something to say about it. Robin Monroe, a New York magazine editor, and the gruff pilot Quinn Harris must put aside their mutual dislike if they are to survive after crash landing on a deserted South Seas island. As a lawyer investigates the murder of a colleague, he finds himself more connected to the crime than anyone else.
They meet when their spouses die in the same plane crash. Then they discover that the spouses were having an affair. Then they have an affair of their own. But ''Random Hearts'' is the kind of movie that won't fit into a nutshell. They have managed to be linear while also drifting thoughtfully through the nuances of their characters' behavior, with a stylistic polish and keenness of observation not often found in American films anymore. The ostensibly high-concept ''Tootsie'' is probably the only film of Mr.
There are so many good things in "Random Hearts," but they're side by side instead of one after the other. They exist in the same film, but they don't add up to the result of the film. Actually, the film has no result--just an ending, leaving us with all of those fine pieces, still waiting to come together. If this were a screenplay and not the final product, you could see how with one more rewrite, it might all fall into place. The movie is about two somber, private adults who find out their spouses were having an affair with each other. They find out in an abrupt and final way, when the two cheaters are killed in the crash of a plane they weren't supposed to be on. Curious, how neither of the survivors ever cries--or maybe they did when the movie wasn't looking.
Let's face it: Harrison Ford is an emotional black hole who can suck the air out of a movie faster than you can say "seal all doors and windows. Sign up and add shows to get the latest updates about your favorite shows - Start Now.
