(28 votes)

Diane Lane is a housewife, married to Richard Gere. Both share a son and an interesting life. However, she is mostly concerned with the domestic end of their relationship and they both are getting complacent to the point of boredom. One windy day in Soho, she is blown by the wind against a handsome young man who asks her upto his apartment so that she can clean up her bruises/scratches. Instead of refusing, she goes up with him and they end up having an affair. They continue to have an affair until the husband, who begins to suspect something is up, hires a detective to follow his wife. He then becomes aware of her affair while she doesn't know of his knowledge.

Continuity mistake: When Connie goes to the back to meet Paul in the coffee shop, there is a shopping bag in the chair next to Sally. The shot goes between her and the other two ladies talking. When the ladies at the table are taking about her getting work, there is nothing in the chair beside Sally. When the shot goes back to Connie coming back to sit down, the shopping bag is back in the chair.

Tracy: Having an affair is nothing like taking a pottery class.
Sally: Could be.
Tracy: No. It would start out like that, and then, um, something would happen. Someone, uh, finds out, or someone falls in love, and it ends disastrously. It always ends disastrously.

More quotes from Unfaithful

Question: In the final scene of the film Richard Gere and Diane Lane have their SUV stopped at a traffic light, and I've noticed that there's a police station directly to their right. This could have very well been a coincidence, but maybe it's not? Does anyone know if it signifies anything pertaining to the plot, for example, the dilemma of Richard Gere turning himself in vs. their decision to flee the country?

Answer: That's exactly what it is meant to portray. If I remember correctly, the SUV's left turn signal is on as well, which only reinforces that idea that they have a choice to make. Right, turn himself in, left, flee the country.
