Mary (Debra Winger) and Michael (Tracy Letts) have been married many years, but the passion has long since disappeared from their lives. Michael is carrying on an affair with a dance teacher named Lucy, while Mary is having a fling with a younger man (Aidan Gillen).

They both tell their respective partners they're going to put an end to their marriage. Just as Mary and Michael have made up their minds to ask for a divorce, a spark between them suddenly reignites, leading them into an impulsive romance.

  • 1 star "Movie was painfully slow, and no substance. Hadn't seen Deborah Winger on screen in decades and was looking forward to her comeback. Did nothing for me."
  • 2 stars "Very slow in the begining, and the end was stupid."
  • 3 stars "The acting was very good - it had a slow beginning, but got better. However, the ending was very unsatisfying, and arrived in a hurry. Disappointing, in a way."
