Storyline

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?

all because of great cast to make it works
20 March 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

for a person who never have special feeling toward Catherine Zeta-Jones, this piece of work of her playing a middle aged mother is truly the best one from her career as far as I believe. Justin Bartha is also the main reason makes this story believable. one of the great example of how right casts can push a B level of the production, script and its director to even possibly work. there are some good moments but most of the time one just so much hope the director can go deeper and build on characters in a much more personal angles, sadly he did't. without these two main actors, the movie would be a 4-5 out of 10 piece of work.
