Maggie's plan to have a baby on her own is derailed when she falls in love with John, a married man, destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant and impossible Georgette. But one daughter and three years later, Maggie is out of love and in a quandary: what do you do when you suspect your man and his ex wife are actually perfect for each other?
The first time John visit's Maggie's apartment and questions her about all the books, she tells him that she's subletting it from a poet. Director Rebecca Miller said she modeled the apartment after one she sublet years ago from poet W.S. Merwin. See more »
It's what keeps my wife in post-modern choreography and me in self-loathing.

There's nothing at all in it. It looks like a children fairy tail with poor characters. The story is predictable, the screenplay is boring, the way actors play is mediocre, the characterization is ridicule. I decided to go see this movie as I've read good reviews on cinema websites and I couldn't help but notice these days people don't really evaluate movies for what they are. In this case, a waste of time and money. As Julianne Moore can still be saved (still, why do good actors accept such poor screenplays?), the movie itself is a low-concentrate of fine sentiments, romantic narrative and some (few) absurd situations which should be funny but they actually aren't. It can easily enter the top 3 worst movies of the year.
