Santa Fe ★★½ 1997 (R)

Muddled romantic drama with an appealing cast. It's taken cop Paul Thomas (Cole) eight months to recover from bullet wounds suffered in a shoot-out with a local cult. In the meantime, wife Leah's (Kelley) distanced herself from the marriage but still urges Paul into group counseling with charismatic Eleanor (Davidovich). Despite Paul's mistrust of her gurulike status, he's naturally drawn to Eleanor (and she to him). There's some tedious subplot stuff but the leads do fine. 97m/C VHS, DVD . Gary Cole, Lolita (David) Davidovich, Sheila Kelley, Tina Majorino, Jere Burns, Pamela Reed, Phyllis Frelich, Mark Medoff, Tony Plana, Jeffrey Jones; D: Andrew Shea; W: Andrew Shea, Mark Medoff; C: Paul Elliott; M: Mark Governor.
