Who knew that when he ordered the special, he'd get the dish of his life? David Duchovny's (The X-Files) "flare for romantic comedy" (Rolling Stone) and Minnie Driver's (Good Will Hunting) "charm and exuberance" (New York Observer) ignite sparks in this "warm-hearted winner" (Jeffery Craig, Sixty Second Preview) about a waitress and a widower who meet and fall in love. It took a lot of cajoling to get Bob (Duchovny), a recently widowed architect, to go on a blind date, at a quirky Irish-Italian eatery. Once there, he's instantly smitten not with his date, but with the cheeky waitress, Grace (Driver). With unsolicited help from Grace's match-making Grandfather (O'Connor), Bob asks her out. And as their relationship blossoms everything seems to be going great for these two love-birds, until an unbelievable truth is revealed - one that could easily break both of their hearts for good. An incredible cast including Carroll O'Connor, Robert Loggia, David Alan Grier, Bonnie Hunt, Joely Richardson and James Belushi help make this meeting of destiny a match made in heaven.
At First Sight:
Witness the extraordinary transformation of seeing the world for the first time and fall in love with life all over again. Directed by Oscar® winner* Irwin Winkler (GoodFellas) and based on a true story by Dr. Oliver Sacks (Awakenings), At First Sight is an exhilarating adventure and the visual experience of a lifetime! Starring Val Kilmer (The Doors, Batman Forever) and Academy Award®-winner** Mira Sorvino (Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion), this "poignant, uplifting drama" (New York Daily News) explores the remarkable journey of a man whose world was darkened by blindness but enlightened by the miracle of science and the wonder of love.
Blind since childhood, Virgil Adamson (Kilmer) is working as a masseur in an upstate New York spa when he meets and falls in love with Amy Benic (Sorvino), a stressed-out, career-driven architect. Certain that Virgil's simple world will be greatly enhanced by an operation to restore his sight, Amy ultimately realizes that Virgil's new vision puts a fresh focus on both their lives.
