divorced empty nester finds herself having an affair with her ex-husband and having fun doing it.
this was alright. it was better than i thought it would be anyway. i fear empty nest syndrome and my kid is only two. i like to think that it is actually like a rebirth when you're only responsible for yourself again. what a strange transition it must be. it probably helps enormously that this writer/ director that focuses on the love lives of women in their 50's/60's always makes her characters loaded and successful. this movie was good at pointing out the complication of relationships of the entire family dynamic when divorce is the way life has been. what things were missed. i.e. the glory of family dinner. i also found it weird that this woman would revel in having the love drama of a highschooler. who wants to deal with that crap at that age? the empty nest thing apparently went into her head and suddenly there was a mid-life crisis thing going on at the same time. i don't know. it's complicated . not really, but it's funnier if i leave it at that. a solid 2.6666666666666 stars
