(In their own words). From acclaimed filmmaker Nicole Holofcener comes a sharply observed comedy about a novelist whose long standing marriage is suddenly upended when she overhears her husband give his honest reaction to her latest book. A film about trust, lies, and the things we say to the people we love most.

- It’s not nearly as quick as the trailer makes it seem.
Honesty is complicated when you are in a relationship.
There’s a fine line between encouraging and creating delusion.
IS IT REWATCHABLE
THE FINAL WORD
Julia Louis-Dreyfus shines while starring in this honest film that explores honesty in relationships. A very well-crafted film from writer/director Nicole Holofcener, this is one of those films that lingers in your mind long after the movie ends. It provokes thought and discussion and makes you examine your own actions in relationships. I think that’s when films really do hit their highest level…when they cause self-reflection. The ensemble cast is excellent as we see truth and honesty examined between all the different types of relationships in the film.
