Rating:
R

Forever Mine is a 1999 romantic crime thriller written and directed by Paul Schrader, which revolves around a passionate affair between a hotel towel boy and the wife of a wealthy man, and her husband's unsuccessful revenge. Mark Brice (Ray Liotta) is an influential and rich man who recently married charming Ellen Brice (Gretchen Mol), and the two are spending their honeymoon in a beach hotel in Florida. Alan Riply (Joseph Fiennes) is a restless young man who works as a towel boy in that hotel, and who manages to seduce adventure-seeking Ellen. When her husband discovers her infidelity, he plans an awful revenge during which Alan's face becomes disfigured. Years later, Manuel Esquema (Ray Liotta), a skilled lawyer with a huge scar on his face is assigned the mission to fix Mark's financial and legal problems. Although Mark thinks that issues with his wife and a young seductive towel boy are a thing of the past, he may be wrong this time.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Salon Charles Taylor

    One of the best American movies of the year and one of the lushest movies in recent memory.

  • 50

    The New York Times Julie Salamon

    Everyone on screen is relentlessly gloomy, as if parched for a drop of wit, which isn't forthcoming.

  • 40

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Paul Schrader hits a low water mark with Forever Mine, a strenuously straight-faced film noir wanna-be that edges perilously close to self-parody.
