From all outward appearances, Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn) leads a charmed existence. She is the devoted wife of an accomplished publisher (Alan Arkin) thirty years her senior, the proud mother of two grown children, and a trusted friend and confidant to all who cross her path. But as Pippa dutifully follows her husband to a new life in a staid Connecticut retirement community, her idyllic world and the persona she has built over the course of her marriage will be put to the ultimate test.

In truth, looks are deceiving, and this picture-perfect woman has seen more than her fair share of turmoil in her youth. Embarking on a bittersweet journey of self-discovery, accompanied by a new, strange and soulful acquaintance (Keanu Reeves), Pippa must now confront both her volatile past and the hidden resentment of her seemingly perfect life in order to find her true sense of self.

  • 4 stars "Excellent acting.The subject was stronger than I would normally entertain, a bit dark, but well done with great feeling...reminded me of American Beauty. Robin Wright,Blake Lively,Maria Bello,Keanu Reeves..all great talents.I did find the driving while sleeping a bit hard to accept..but other than was a well told story of people trying to live their lives despite such pain."
