Sadie - Age 13 (as Eliza Barry Calahan)


Sandy, upon discovering her husband's infidelity while watching her son's birthday video, leaves the suburbs and moves into the city. She gets an apartment that's above a coffee house where she befriends one of the workers, Aram, a guy whose wife only married him so she could get a green card. Aram's family thinks he's wasting his life and education by working in the coffee house. Soon after moving into the apartment, Sandy hires Aram to be her nanny while she takes on work for the first time since her children were born. It isn't long when Aram and Sandy find they get along wonderfully and start to date. But the question is: is their relationship real or is it, in fact, just a rebound for both of them?

just what you need to warm up your heart
7 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie and thought go on Chris get on IMDb (for the first time) and review this movie. Where do I start......far too many times do you watch a movie because of tonnes of media and press, but this ain't even had a UK release yet. It was so cool, I love films filmed in New York always feels xmasy to me. Zeta Jones is so good on screen hard to think she came from Swansea (down the road from where i live) The dude from National Treasure is a bit wet but that sort of fits in with todays modern man I think. He sweeps Zeta off her feet with the love and emotion that she craves after a suburban hellish marriage. The kids are well funny and from someone who is on the brink of having kids this movie gave me the confidence to believe in my family to come soon. Catch this movie I am 33 and cant wait for my g/f to watch it, I hope she enjoys it as much as I did.
