Academy Award Winner Natalie Portman (Black Swan) lights up the screen in this frank, funny, and heart-wrenching adaptation of bestselling author Ayelet Waldman s novel about life, loss, and family.
Emilia (Portman) is a Harvard law school graduate and a newlywed, after falling in love with her already married high-powered boss Jack (Scott Cohen, Love & Other Drugs), when she began working at his law firm.
Unfortunately, Emilia s life takes an unexpected turn following the sudden death of her and Jack s newborn daughter. Devastated, Emilia struggles through her grief and tries to forge a connection with her precocious new stepson William (Charlie Tahan, I Am Legend), whilst also trying to cope with the constant interferences of her husband s angry, jealous ex-wife, Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow, Friends).
Can Emilia rediscover her own capacity for love in time to salvage her failing marriage and build a family from the wreckage?
