THE SECRET DREAMS OF EMILY PORTER
To thwart her mother's meddling, artist Emily Porter pretends that actor turned photographer Ethan Douglas is her boyfriend, although she's never met him. To Emily's horror, they actually encounter Ethan that same night! Out of a lie, love, marriage and a child are born, but Ethan is taken from Emily prematurely. Even though she clings to his nearly tangible presence in the home they shared, when Emily meets contractor Josh Lundgren, she notices him right away. But can she let go of Ethan's memory and embrace a future without him? Judith Raxten makes an unforgettable debut with The Secret Dreams of Emily Porter (4.5). Excellent characters are the heart of the story, which mixes pathos and humor wonderfully.
