In this romantic comedy, Mary (Isabella Rossellini) and Adam (William Hurt) aren't your typical older couple, they're high functioning and stylish and to their great surprise, they've entered the senior category. Adam is in frantic denial, desperately looking for the fountain of youth as Mary decides to deal with the situation by doing what she does best, taking care of her husband and family. After 30 years together, the married couple confronts the unpalatable realities of getting older and concludes that emotional absence is the easiest way to cope. But at what point does distance become divorce? A clash soon becomes inevitable as their children, grandchildren, parents and friends try to reconcile them.

I realize that I'm giving away a spoiler or two here, but there is absolutely nothing about this story that resonates, in my opinion, with real life. How do you go from a long standing loving and supportive partnership to separation and infidelity in roughly the blink of an eye? And their three children fare no better, they are superficially one dimensional and absurdly dull, and while Isabella (Mary) is still a luminous woman, here her character is utterly selfish (even stupid) while at the same time resonates a complete disconnect from life. William's Adam fares only slightly better but does seem more human. For me, the only real bright spot in the movie is Joanna Lumley's character and the actress that plays Mary's (Isabella) mother.
I rarely regret a purchase, but this one fell completely flat.
