Sliding Doors

Sliding Doors Review


What would have happened if Gwynny caught the train? Her hair wouldn't have been brown, for starters! Sliding Doors is an unabashed, melancholic Gwynny vehicle, which isn't such a bad thing since she's so darn cute. The story, about a hapless Brit who we follow during two alternate realities -- one stuck in a loveless relationship, one striking out on her own, is fairly fun but wholly improbable. Which is why this is a romantic comedy-drama and not a flat-out drama (which would have just been depressing). The ending is not altogether satisfying, but it's certainly an original (though widely copied since).
