  With "The Door in the Floor," a middle-aged Jeff Bridges is given his finest forum in years, allowing him to flaunt the acting know-how that he's honed since youth. The same film offers Kim Basinger a chance to show that her best supporting actress Oscar for "L.A. Confidential" was no fluke. Bridges' meaty performance as Ted Cole, a famous children's-book author rendered dissolute by personal tragedy, is the shattered soul of "The Door in the Floor," director/screenwriter Tod Williams' meticulously executed, slightly chilly film adaptation of the first part of John Irving's novel "A Widow for One Year." Basinger's work as Ted's estranged wife Marion is the feature's broken heart. It's summertime in the stylish beach community of East Hampton, New York, where the Coles have a home. Ted and Marion are separated, but they're trying to put up a good front for their precocious 4-year-old daughter Ruth (Elle Fanning, younger sister of child star Dakota). In need of an assistant, Ted hires prep-school student Eddie O'Hare (Jon Foster) who idolizes the philandering author, is attracted to the beautiful Marion and is ripe to be manipulated by the couple. If you're ready to watch a once-happy marriage in mid-crumble after a devastating loss, this rueful, expertly acted movie tempered by a few flashes of wit is for you. With Mimi Rogers as Ted's latest sexual diversion.
