The story follows a married couple, apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he's attracted. While he's resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love.
Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennet meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome their own pride and prejudice?
Pippa Lee feels dislocated when she and her husband Herb move from Manhattan to a retirement community. He's older than she, they have two children who are young adults, and the daughter hardly speaks to Pippa. Pippa tells us about her life, in long flashbacks, starting with her birth to a mom who was a social dynamo and addicted to pills. As a teen, Pippa moves out and lives a hippie life until meeting Herb, who was then married to a young siren. Pippa discloses tragedies and discoveries. In the present, she's sleepwalking at night and talking from time to time with a burned-out case, the 35-year-old son of a neighbor. Can Pippa connect? Written by

I have known Pippa Lee for 25 years and I think that I will really ever know her. She is a mystery... an enigma... giving, caring, beautiful, intelligent... the very icon of an artist's wife.

Both actresses (Robin Wright and Blake Lively) have done an amazing job. I admire both of them very much. Maria Bello was also very charming! (I am a female, by the way)
I have a problem with Blake Lively's name written nearly at the bottom of the cast's list in this page. In my opinion her performance was really great in this movie, she has to be listed at least 3rd. Now it seems as if she isn't important. I had to watch the movie 3 times and couldn't stop admiring her(Robin Wright also but not as much)!
The storyline is simple but it says so much at the same time. I could relate with the main character because I also haven't any good relationship with my mother. I must read the book to make it complete I guess... I will definitely watch this movie again some time.
