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: At the beginning the wind is blowing very hard and Richard Gere and his son are having problems getting outside. Two seconds later, when Diane Lane is looking at them through the window, there is no wind.

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.

Question: The final scene in the car at the red light in front of the Police station. They are discussing escaping to Mexico for the rest of their lives. They hold each other. The car doesn't move. Do they give themselves up to the police? Is that what the writer is implying?

Answer: Although Connie wanted them to go to Mexico and assume new identities, it is implied that Edward, who initially goes along with that idea, will likely turn himself into the police. However, there's no definitive ending given, so the audience is left to interpret the outcome.
