* GoodAdulteryBadAdultery in the book: Annie commits adultery because she's fallen in love with Tom Booker. The two of them are portrayed as nothing but sympathetic, despite the fact that Annie's deeply distressed daughter Grace is involved. Annie's husband is a nice guy and devoted family man. Tom [[spoiler:dies in order to save Grace's life in what could be construed as an act of RedemptionEqualsDeath]].

* HappyEnding and BittersweetEnding: The former for Grace, the latter for Annie.



* LoveHurts: Both Annie and Tom fall for each other, Tom while he's still hurting after his past love died and Annie while she's married. Annie's strongly implied to love Tom even more than her husband but ends up abruptly leaving in the end, not wanting to hurt both their families. It ends with Tom watching her car drive away while on horseback on a hill, watching a woman he loves disappear from his life yet again.

The story explores both the recovery and the mutual attraction developed between the two adults. Which is confusing for them as Annie is still married and Tom is recovering from a divorce. The film received mostly positive reviews. While critics praised the "exquisitively crafted, morally and thematically mature picture", several felt it was overly long and dull. It was also a box office hit, earning $186,883,563 worldwide. It earned $75,383,563 in the United States, the 27th most succesful film of its year.
