Product Description

Synopsis: After nearly two decades under the wing of an aging, avuncular husband (Alan Arkin), dutiful mother and housewife Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn) undergoes a midlife breakthrough. Unearthing the sexually curious wild child of teens (as portrayed by Blake Lively), middle age Pippa sparks a relationship with a divorcee loner (Keanu Reeves). The Private Lives of Pippa Lee features Wright Penn in a revelatory performance as a resilient woman, refusing to let life pass her by.
Written by award-winning screenwriter and director Rebecca Miller, daughter of renowned playwright Arthur Miller.
Critics are saying it is Robin Wright Penn s tour de force performance and award buzz has already begun! the difference between growing old and growing up.
Produced by Plan B Entertainment, Brad Pitt s Production Company!

Written and directed by Rebecca Miller (The Ballad of Jack and Rose), The Private Lives of Pippa Lee is a film that, like Thelma and Louise and those that have followed in its footsteps, seems best suited for women who yearn for a little adventure. The female characters in this film are better developed than the male, which on one hand makes one more sympathetic to Pippa and her plight, but on the other hand makes it difficult to imagine any man watching the movie with interest. The story focuses on Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn), a middle-aged woman married to an older man, publisher Herb Lee (Alan Arkin), with whom she feels bored and disconnected. Flashing back through time, scenes depict Pippa as a young girl (played by Madeline McNulty), then as a rambunctious, drug-addled twenty-something (played by Blake Lively). Some scenes, set in the 1960s and 1970s, feature Suky Sarkissian (Maria Bello), Pippa's hyper, dysfunctional mother, acting out her suburban housewife malaise to imply that boredom among married women is a contagious curse. Before Pippa Sarkissian gives her hand in marriage to the chauvinistic Lee, a few fun, original scenes do occur that spice up this generally tepid film. As Pippa leaves her childhood home, she encounters the most dynamic characters in the film, her Aunt Trish (Robin Weigart) and Trish's girlfriend, Kat (Julianne Moore), who teach her what it means to relish sexual freedom. However, Pippa grows into an uptight and unhappy woman who is only slightly rescued by her neighbor's son, Chris (Keanu Reeves). Since the film portrays a woman who is rather dull, it unfortunately suffers from a lack of passion as well. Still, the moments in which Pippa's surviving family does succeed and thrive may remind the viewer of that old phrase carpe diem. --Trinie Dalton
