Naomi Watts plays Elizabeth, Karen's daughter, now a lawyer in her mid-thirties who experiences a crisis of identity when she falls in love with her recently-bereaved boss, Paul (Samuel L. Jackson).

Our review

"Annette Bening is superb in this thought-provoking but slightly rambling drama that mostly works thanks to the talents of its quality cast."
