Yesterday I just saw the movie “It’s Complicated” with Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. I really liked the movie. (Is Meryl Streep ever in a bad movie?) The premise of the movie is this; Meryl plays a mother (Jane) of three grown kids. After a decade of divorce she has an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (Baldwin). But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things happen. An innocent meal together turns into an unimaginable affair. Jake is remarried to the much younger and hotter Agnes (Lake Bell), for whom he left Jane 10 years prior. Jane is now the other woman.
So the question the movie explores is whether a divorced couple can really move backwards and/or is it possible to rekindle an old flame? Do all ex-lovers carry with them unfinished business, especially if there are children involved?
What do you think?
