Cast:Ralph Fiennes, Julianne Moore, Stephen Rea

The End of the Affair is a striking adaptation of Graham Greene's semi-autobiographical novel dealing with passionate love, faith, and betrayal. In a role that favorably recalls his performance in The English Patient, Ralph Fiennes plays a man ravaged by a wartime affair with a married woman. That woman, Sarah Miles, is brought to life in a nuanced performance by Julianne Moore. Period details of World War II London form a sultry backdrop to the tale told in a complex yet fluid series of flashbacks.
