Maybe a bit, in its unusual setting, the world of prescription drug sales, and in its attempt to inject drama by arbitrarily giving an incurable disease to one of its romantic leads. Yet despite its dramatic pretenses and far racier sex scenes than the typical studio romance, the movie is as predictable and ultimately as sappy as any other run-of-the-mill Hollywood love story.

We sat down one on one with Ed Zwick late last week and he told us about his dislike for the Oscars as sport, what attracted him to non-epic material, and finally, tapping his TV-centric sensibilities for the big screen.
