Editorial Reviews

Academy Award winner Natalie Portman ("Black Swan") in an "utterly fearless performance" (Rob Nelson, Variety) stars as a newlywed trying to cope with guilt and loss in this sensitive and compelling modern drama adapted by writer-director Don Roos ("The Opposite of Sex") from the novel by Ayelet Waldman. Portman plays Emilia, a law-school graduate who falls in love with her married boss, Jack (Scott Cohen, "The Understudy"). After Emilia marries Jack, her happiness turns unexpectedly to grief following the death of her infant daughter. Devastated, Emilia nonetheless carries on, attempting to forge a connection with her stepson William (Charlie Tahan, "I Am Legend") and to resist the interference of Jack's jealous ex-wife (Lisa Kudrow, "Easy A," "The Opposite of Sex"). Don Roos ("Happy Endings," "Bounce") demonstrates his keen eye for the nuances of love, loss, and rebuilding life in this heartfelt and touching drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Growth of Natalie Portman April 20, 2011
Format:DVD
THE OTHER WOMAN is a film that is a bit difficult to watch both because of the thematic material and because of the uneven quality of the film itself. Based on the novel LOVE AND OTHER IMPOSSIBLE PURSUITS by Ayelet Waldman (the original release of this film in 2009 used this title) and adapted for the screen by writer/director Don Roos, the story deals with SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), divorce, step-parenting, the legal vagaries that surround divorce and remarriage, and loss. One of the reasons the film didn't make it on first theater release is that it was advertised as 'A comedy/drama that details the story of a woman's difficult relationship with her stepson.' Yes, that is a small part of the story, but this film is hardly a comedy and in fact it seems to have difficulty in deciding just what the main story is!

The opening credits begin with images of an infant girl but as soon as the action begins we are introduced to Emilia (Natalie Portman) and her husband Jack (Scott Cohen) and son William (Charlie Tahan) There is an undefined tension that is soon explained through flashbacks: Emilia fell in love with Jack who was married to OB/GYN physician Carolyne (Lisa Kudrow) and the love affair quickly developed into Jack's divorcing Carolyne and marrying Emilia. The newlyweds promptly had a baby girl who lived only three days, leaving Emilia in a prolonged state of grieving and denial. Carolyne is a controlling viper and makes the couple's life miserable, refusing complete visitation privileges with William, creating a toxic relationship between Emilia and her 'stepson' William.

Can you love someone's son after you lost your daughter? Emilia's (Portman) relationship with her husbands son is strained after the death of thier 3 day old daughter. To make matters worse his ex wife (Kudrow) is doing her best to turn the son against her. This is a very heartbreaking movie to watch and it is a little difficult to make it through. Much more devastating then "Rabbit Hole". Portman is incredible in this and actually should have won the Oscar for this and not "Black Swan" (though she did deserve it). Although this is a very hard movie to get through it is entirely worth it and you will be glad you watched it. This is not a typical Hollywood movie and that's why it is so good. Very heart-wrenching and moving. It will make you examine your life to decide what is important. When you watch this make sure you don't have plans after, it will bring you down, though the ending is a little uplifting. I really enjoyed this movie, much more then I thought I would. I give it an A.

Would I watch again? - I might, but it would be tough.

*Also try - Rabbit Hole & Step Mom

Being well intentioned doesn't always translate to being great. As Don Roos' "The Other Woman" deals with a sensitive and painful subject, it may seem easy to overlook all the chaotic and unconvincing elements of the film. I'm a Roos fan. He won me over with the eccentric, but hysterical, "The Opposite of Sex" and the charming, but flawed, "Happy Endings." So I was eager to jump into his more serious side with this film. There are some lovely successes within the movie, but there are just as many moments that don't connect. Ultimately, I found the movie to be frustrating. I wanted to love it, I just didn't. A big portion of the film would merit 5 stars as noted below, but the picture never comes together as a cohesive whole.

Centered around Natalie Portman, the film chronicles a family tale of grief and perseverance. Portman is generally unsympathetic as she blithely enters into an affair with a married man (Scott Cohen), becomes pregnant, breaks up his marriage and weds him herself, and then loses the baby. Reeling from the aftermath of this tragedy, she still tries to hold the relationship together and forge a bond with her difficult stepson. I loved Portman's every day persona and the fact that Roos didn't attempt to make her the lovable heroine. Her character played as a complex and real person, and so the grief scenes had much more poignancy. Her budding friendship with stepson Charlie Tahan is easily the most convincing, multi-layered, and fascinating part of the movie. Both actors play off each other exceedingly well--and the interplay is refreshingly free of cliche. As the heart of the movie, this aspect really works.

But in the peripheral details, the film starts to go a bit south.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I expected... October 25, 2011
Format:DVD
I came across this movie by accident and I almost didn't watch it when I saw that it was considered a comedy/drama. That is incorrect. This movie is not a comedy. It acutally dealt with some very serious issues. There is no humor in infidelity, divorce, dysfunctional relationships,and most of all, the death of a child. This movie has all of that and than some. I won't give a review of what it was about, others have already done that. But I will say that it's a very real movie, filled with some intense emotions that a few time had me on the verge of tears. I think for those of us who have lost a child, this movie hits home and heart. My nephew only lived for one day, 26 years ago, and as she floated her waffer in the water after the memorial walk, I wished that I was there to float one for Anthony.
