This is a film that should have received a great deal more

attention. It's shot mostly on location on Martha's Vineyard,

and beautifully filmed. It's about relationships and the

interaction between people--Beau Bridges as the husband, who

can usually commute down from Boston on weekends, Helen Mirren

as the psychologiccaly troubled wife with two young children,

and Kyra Sedgwick as the au pair/mother's helper Bridges hires to

cook and look after the kids, since Mirren cannot do so.

Sedgwick also has some deep-rooted psychological problems, and

it is fascinating to watch Mirren emerge from her own problems

to help Sedgwick. It's not an easy movie to watch--no murders

or car chases to provide a counterpoint. The cast is stellar

and the story is compelling, and by the end of the film you

feel somewhat drained emotionally. A fine film!

As a mother of three young children, estranged from my husband in the 80's, confronted with powerful emotions of attraction for a young woman, I connected with the torment of Chase Phillips. I note that she was referred to as psychologically troubled, but to be honest, when faced with such an attraction that society has labelled as a "sickness" does one wonder why. However, do we not realize that if allowed to be true to one's nature, it would not be psychologically troubling at all, but, rather, liberating. Thank you for an incredible story, one I was thrilled to claim as my own. I thank the universe for the courage to be true to my nature and the life that courage has allowed me to live. Thankfully I did not have to sacrifice my mental health or my children; but have enjoyed a rich relationship with all for the past 12 years. The children are moving on with their lives now, and mom is enjoying life in her 40's. It can go unsaid of course, I've been smitten with Chase Phillips since viewing Losing Chase. Helen Mirren, you have a hopelessly devoted fan in Austin Texas.

Format: VHS Tape
This is a thinking woman's type movie. For this concerns one that has reached a certain age, a certain stature, 'happily' married with a child and then the dawning (and daunting) realization that her life is a hollow shell. Self expression without self, an artist barely passed a failed suicide riddled with doubt now neither a wife or a mother. Then there is an awakening back to herself - an epiphany of who she is and who she wants. But at what cost?
Helen Mirren plays this role like a suit of clothing, her sheer ability to progress from a drugged automaton to the self aware woman that 'what she has is not enough'. The supporting cast of Kyra Sedgwick as the nanny/nurse and Beau Bridges as the trying to comprehend husband are also excellent. Without revealing the plot the interaction of the three actors is superb.
The plotline is totally believable and realistic - there are no true villains here (or heroes) just everyday people trying to cope with life situations that are almost more then they can handle. I felt empathy with each of the characters, their actions and reactions were totally understandable within the framework of the film.
So, bottom line, this is a good movie but it is definitely character driven. Personal awareness and growth are themes that resonant to all.

I, personally, am not a lesbian. I would recommend this movie to any of the "GaY Phobia" people. The fact that Mirren turns out to be a lesbian has no baring on the emotions you will express while watching this film. It has a wonderful cast of characters and exceptional use of words. I would recommend this to anyone 13 yrs or older, of any gender, and any sexual prefrence.

Losing Chase is a movie about coming alive and the sharing of coming alive. The Helen Mirren character is in deep depression and her husband takes her and their children to their island home, Martha's Vineyard, for the summer. He commutes from his job on weekends so he hires a caretaker, Kyra Sedgwick, to look after her and the children. Sedgwick has her own issues and Mirren begins to recover as she changes positions with her. It is beautifully fllmed and wonderfully acted.

This movie flowed through me. Witnessing the birth and realization of Chase's wanton self enraptured me. The story, soft and believably true was superbly acted and Kevin Bacon should be applauded for his direction.
This film(and Helen Mirren) took my hand and drew me in. It's a must see for any hopeless romantic and emotionally intelligent person.

After I viewed this movie I was so thankful to have been taken in by this story. Helen Mirren was one of my favorite actresses before seeing her in this movie, but this one clinched it for me. As she found out who and what she was, I suffered and cried with her for her pain. What a moving story....

This movie captivates you from the very beginning. You can almost feel Mirren's condition and are pulled into it. I was asking myself why Sedgwick would want to take on such a challenging task of taking care of a woman in her condition when she had already had to deal with it in her own family. However, the movie gelled for me when she faced off with Mirren in the pouring rain in such a tormented state trying to find answers to her past. This not only was a healing moment for Elizabeth, but a turning point for Chase as well. This movie showed the depth of a woman who went along and played by all the rules, until it proved too much. I was a little sad at the end when Chase's husband left and found another woman, yet Elizabeth did not stay. But the title does sort of give it away. You felt good though, knowing she had a new direction in life and a better understanding of herself.
