Eva (Louis-Dreyfus) meets Albert (Gandolfini) at a party and they become romantically involved. Both are divorced, and have daughters leaving for college, so they have a lot in common. It looks like they could have a real relationship starting. But when Eva befriends Albert’s ex-wife, Marianne (Keener), she starts to hear all about Albert’s faults. Is he really the man for her after all?
From the moment Julia Louis-Dreyfus stepped out of her Prius in her earthy sandals, I knew I was going to enjoy this film!
Each of the characters have been carefully created with a fine eye for detail, and this does make a huge difference to the quality of the film – noted and appreciated. The dialogue is quite flawless and expertly delivered from Louis-Dreyfus and Collette (as the best friend).
It is becoming increasingly more common to see 40 and 50-something-year-old women as the main protagonists in mainstream rom coms. They aren’t made to look younger, they are given the space to be 40 and 50-something-year-old women, and this too, is noted and appreciated.
This is an extremely enjoyable film for the more mature lover of romantic comedies.
