Return to Me

"Return to Me" is not your typical rom-com, which is exactly why I adore it. It stars the unlikely romantic lead David Duchovny, who at the time was best known for playing the brooding X-Files' Agent Mulder. It got my attention when it was released in 2000 because it was Chicagoan Bonnie Hunt's latest project, who was having a genuine "moment" as actress-writer-director-Late Show with David Letterman regular. The unexpected chemistry between Duchovny and Minnie Driver hooked me, and the incredible supporting cast including Carol O'Connor, Robert Loggia, David Allen Grier, Jim Belushi, Hunt, and the City of Chicago itself sealed the deal. The nostalgic soundtrack still sticks with me, and as an extra special side note, it was O'Connor's final film.

It took a lot of cajoling to get Bob, a recently widowed architect, to go on a blind date at a quirky Irish-Italian eatery. Once there, he's smitten instantly not with his date but with the sharp-witted waitress. Everything seems to be going great until an unbelievable truth is revealed, one that could easily break both of their hearts for good.
