Sarah Michelle Gellar,
With her life at a crossroads, 25 year old Sophie Conway returns home to the small town she always wanted to forget. Once home, she is faced with the friends and lovers she left behind, a tangled relationship with her Mother, and Harry Pleasant, an Alzheimer's Disease patient who, in an opposing way, shares Sophie's struggle to remember.
A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.
Sarah Michelle Gellar,
Brett, a young woman from the suburbs, is an associate editor at a small New York publishing house, hoping to be promoted when, on the same day, she meets a literary lion, Archie Knox, who's 50 and who shows an interest in her, and gets a new boss, a dolly-dolly Brit. Brett is soon dating Archie, then moves in with him. He's charming, attentive, and gives advice. He also has a history - ex-wives, a distant daughter, a couple of diseases, and a photo album of former girlfriends. It's no fairy tale: family issues (and more) intervene, and Brett has decisions to make. Meanwhile, she's working with a writer who fears peanut butter sticking to the roof of his mouth. Is Archie dinner, an hors d'oeuvre, or a peanut-butter sandwich? Written by

Just a minute miss, sorry to bug you. But your father hasn't filled out his dinner menu yet. Would you mind?
He's not my father.
I said he's not my father. He's my boyfriend. I have sex with him!
Either way he eats, right?

A smart Rom Drama ( wont really count it as a Rom Com ) Movie. As a viewer I liked it, and loved the smart dialogue.
The movie basically talking about the young Sarah Michelle Gellar, with a dream of becoming a successful editor and publisher in New york. Get in love with a whale in that business, an old man, double her age. An attractive smart one.
The character of Archie Knox ( 50 years old lover ) is a very successful one. Well written character, a man with loads of previous relationships, a very successful man in the editing business, and therefore has his own way of talking, because of his culture, and education, and all the reading that made him be the best in his field.
The script was well written that shows the changes that occurs on Sarah Michelle Gellar after getting in a relation with this sober, smart, intellectual 50 years old successful man.
But it wasn't really a fair relationship, as was said it was a teacher student relationship.
Directing 6.5/10 Acting 7/10 Script 7/10
I would give the script less than that, but the dialogue was well written, although the script it self wasn't perfect because it didn't has the right dramatic ups and downs.
To some up ... watch the movie. Khalid_AlMasry@hotmail.com
