Storyline

A middle-aged woman has what she believes is a great life. She's been married for 25 years, she is the book editor at a newspaper where her husband is the editor and they have a great family. That all comes to a screeching halt one day when her husband announces that he is leaving her for a younger woman. Not only that, but the younger woman is her assistant. Not only that, but he's taking the newspaper in "a new direction" and won't need her anymore. It's then that she finds out who her friends and the people who love her REALLY are, and she gets a surprise when she runs into a man from her past. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

It's payback time for this middle-aged woman..
27 September 2004 | by (Rockville, MD) – See all my reviews

Christine Lahti shines as a middle-aged professional woman who feels like she's been hit by a train when her husband announces he's leaving her. Not only that... he's leaving her for the younger, prettier, perkier woman who happens to be her assistant! Lahti is devastated but somehow manages to laugh through her tears as she thinks back on the signs of marital woe that she missed. Thank goodness she has support from her best friend, her 2 kids, and her mother. Things at first go from bad to worse for her, but then there is a silver lining, a wonderful revenge scene involving her boss --- and a man from her past, to help her pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Highly recommended for all gals over 40!!
