Overview

Rebecca Miller (THE BALLAD OF JACK & ROSE) adapts her own novel with this comedy drama about a woman who begins a second life after her husband leaves her for a younger woman. Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn) is the loving mother of two grown children, and the wife of successful publisher Herb (Alan Arkin). Despite the fact that she's 30 years Herb's junior, Pippa and her husband never fell short on things to talk about. She's always enjoyed the hustle and bustle of New York, but after Herb suffers a serious heart attack, Pippa dutifully moves with him to a quaint suburban home in small-town Connecticut. And for a while at least, she coasts - enjoying frequent dinner parties with her new friends Sam (Mike Binder) and Sandra (Winona Ryder), and spending quiet nights caring for Herb, who has lately grown increasingly distant. That all starts to chance when Chris (Keanu Reeves) comes back to town following a bitter divorce. Gradually, Pippa's suppressed resentments begin bubbling to the surface, highlighting the conflict between the free-spirited girl she used to be, and the frustrated woman who has taken her place. Somewhere along the line, Pippa lost track of her own identity. But Pippa's remarkable journey of self-discovery is just beginning. Julianne Moore, Monica Bellucci, and Maria Bello co-star in a Plan B Entertainment production.

3 stars out of 5 -- "What Miller's movie does possess in spades is a spry, oddball streak of humour and an assembly line of funky character parts for cool, charisma-packed actresses..." - 07/23/2009 Total Film


"[F]eaturing an Oscar-worthy turn by Robin Wright....Wright gives the title character a complexity and emotional shading often missing in this kind of ensemble comedy/drama." - 11/27/2009 USA Today


"Its refusal to push the usual emotional buttons and its insistence that we not pass moral judgment on the characters' erratic behavior make it an exceptionally cleareyed assessment of a stratum of American life..." - 11/27/2009 New York Times


"Wright's performance is her most relatable in memory: subtle, sad, humorous and wistful..." - 11/24/2009 Movieline
