'Truly Madly Deeply' Anthony Minghella wrote and made his feature directorial debut with his enchanting 1990 -- it was released here in 1991 -- British comedy about getting on with life after the death of a loved one. Juliet Stevenson plays Nina, a young woman who is inconsolable after the death of her cellist boyfriend, Jamie (Alan Rickman). She even spurns the advances of a potential suitor (Michael Maloney). Then one day, Jamie's ghost arrives. But her joy -- and their passion -- is short-lived when he begins to bring his odd ghostly friends to the house -- all which seem to be couch potatoes. "I can't believe I have a bunch of dead people watching videos in my living room," she explains of her spirited house guests.
