Nora Wilder is freaking out. Everyone around her is in a relationship, is married, or has children. Nora is in her thirties, alone with job she's outgrown and a mother who constantly reminds her of it all. Not to mention her best friend Audrey's "perfect marriage". But after a series of disastrous dates, Nora unexpectedly meets Julien, a quirky Frenchman who opens her eyes to a lot more than love. Written by
to say i enjoyed broken English would be an understatement. this movie struck home with me like few others. a bit slow for your average audience, i found it was wonderfully acted, awkward, painful, poignant, sad, realistic, and thankfully not your typical Hollywood ending! parker posey is fantastic as a sometimes neurotic, pensive, emotional and desperate woman who feels as though she'll be alone forever. my favorite scenes are the bathtub, the restaurant/desert/bathroom scene and the one where she's finally let it go and decided to have fun despite it all when her and her girlfriend are in Paris. one of my top favorite movies!
