Thanks, Hather, that sums up my original take on the movie, too. The Helen Hunt character, Cheryl, was indeed admirable, but her family wasn't all that bad. The John Hawkes character, Mark, was exceptionally vulnerable and sensitive, which seemed to bring out feelings in Cheryl that aren't so frequently evoked in more typical relationships. It was an unusual set of circumstances that caused her to fall in love with her client. And, of course, it's entirely possible to love more than one person at a time. Love can be the ultimate compliment,
Well, now I suppose I'd better read the original story that Chip linked, to see if the real Cheryl's feelings for the real Mark were apparent to Mark.
