"The Popular Mechanic's version of Jules and Jim."
2 July 2017 | by dloebeSee all my reviews

A Strange Affair indeed! What a film! Judith Light shines in this made-for- Lifetime(?) drama based on "real events". Lisa (Light), a proud graduate of Betty Crocker U, her husband Eric (the ubiquitous Jay Thomas) and a greasy-nailed poor mans' Colin Firth (Russ) offer an, um, interesting(?) dynamic.
