Emily Greenleaf (Natalie Portman) has a crush on her boss, Jack(Scott Cohen) and she sets out to win him away from his wife Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow). But he comes with some baggage in the part of William, Jack’s son (Charlie Tahan) who has been badly poisoned against Emilia by his mother. As Emilia sets out to try to win him over she finds she herself carries some heavy baggage and help comes to her in a way she could never expect.

This romantic drama, heavy on the drama is a fairly dark story of love and loss, tragedy and forgiveness. Each of the characters is not exactly black and white, but different shades of gray, and it’s a realistic look at the foibles of real human beings. This is not a stunning film, and is not overly engrossing. You might find it a bit slow and boring were it not saved by the acting of Natalie Portman and Charlie Tahan (the young son) who bind together to attempt to save this film. As such, it’s a pretty decent dark independent romantic drama with a lot of redeeming qualities. You can find much worse than this, and it’s kind of a fresh look at real people and real problems. Infidelity is never easy, and when you come into it with such issues in tow, it makes it even harder. The original title of this work is “Love and Other Impossible Pursuits” which is a good stab at a proper title for this story. It is very difficult, but as I stated, help comes from where you would least expect it.
