Running Time: 98 mins
Emilia (Natalie Portman 2010 Academy Award winning Best Actress Black Swan) and her husband John (Scott Cohen, Love and Other Drugs) struggle to keep their lives together after the unexpected SIDS death of their 3-day old daughter Isabel. Complicating the situation is John's son Jack (Charlie Tahan Charlie St. Cloud) who primarily lives with his mother Carolyne (Lisa Kudrow EasyA), a doctor.
Emilia has the responsibility of collecting Jack from his school where she encounters snide glances and whispers from some other mothers - Emilia and John's relationship began as an office affair whilst he was still married. Worse still, as hard as she tries to be a good step-parent to the boy, her efforts are hindered by the fact that Jack serves as his mother's moutpiece, and at times speaks in a very off-hand and cruel way about Isabel's death.
Don Roos (Marley and Me) adapted and directed one of the year's most heart-warming and emotional movies - one that you will want to share with someone you love.
"Natalie Portman delivers an utterly fearless performance." Variety
