I'm trying to identify the source of this scene in a movie or TV show:

  • this was a TV show or movie from the 1990s or 2000s

  • a younger woman is attracted to an older, married man

  • he might have been of some sort of Spanish-type descent, but I'm not sure

  • they might have worked together, but I'm not sure

  • the two of them are talking -- I think it was while having a meal at a restaurant, but I'm not sure

  • he kindly tells her that they cannot have a relationship, even though he likes her very much

  • she is sad and frustrated but accepting

Could be "Mr. Holland's Opus".

Mr. Holland is a music teacher in a high school, and one year when doing the school revue, he has an ingenue with an incredible voice. During the rehearsals and other musical events, she becomes attracted to him, and to some extent vice versa. When she wants to go to New York to pursue a vocal career, she asks him to come with. Slightly later he refuses her, but gives her the number of an old band mate to look after her when she arrives. She is sad, but accepting of his decision.

Thank you, but it was a different movie... the man was not Richard Dreyfuss. – Shiz Z. May 23 '14 at 15:34
