In fact, what I am going to do is leave you in the more than capable hands of the man himself, Nicolas Cage. Or should I say “hand”.
He plays one-handed baker named Ronny, who falls in love with his brother’s wife-to-be, a Brooklyn book-keeper called Loretta (Cher).
“Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn’t know this either, but love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed!”
