Prelude to a Kiss

Prelude to a Kiss

Alec Baldwin reprises a role he originated in Craig Lucas's off-Broadway smash (which later had a Broadway run without him) in this touchingly romantic, funny, and underrated fantasy. He falls for a woman (Meg Ryan) at first sight and marries her, but, on their wedding day, an elderly stranger wanders into the reception, kisses the bride, and trades bodies with her. Once Baldwin figures out that something is amiss with the Mrs., he must track down the old man, in whom resides the spirit of his true love. This is a beautiful allegory about the nature of love and the commitment to give oneself in sickness and health, for better or worse, to achieve a true meeting of the spirits. Prelude to a Kiss was directed with a light touch by the late Norman Rene, with strong performances by Baldwin and Ryan. --Marshall Fine
