Ruth is a wife and mother who tries to please her husband (Bob) but finds him pulling away and spending more time at the office than at home. When he begins an affair with a famous romance novelist (Mary) and leaves Ruth to raise their kids, she decides she's had enough of playing nice docile housewife. Ruth endeavors to show Bob and Mary the truth about themselves and each other, while creating a new successful life of her own.Written by
In the opening scenes, when Roseanne is trying on the gold-and-black minidress, she turns 3/4 to the camera and we hear the dress's zipper and she looks satisfied at finally getting it to zip up. But in the mirror on the left, the dress is still half-unzipped and her bra is still showing as much as before. See more »
OK, Ruth, I'll give you a few days, then you've got to come back for the kids. Where can I reach you?
I'm not coming back, Bob. They'll have a much better life here with you.
Wait a minute, Ruth, where're you going?
I don't know, Bob, into my future, I guess.

If you think this is good wait till you see the british version
If you enjoyed this film wait till you see the british version starring Patricia Hodge, Dennis Waterman and Julie.T.wallace. Once you have seen it you will forget why you ever liked this film. If you want a dramatic end to this story watch the english version it doesn't end as happily as this film there is no fairy tale end to mary fishers life only for ruth.
