Margot (Michelle Williams) and Lou (Seth Rogen) are a happily married couple living a quiet, comfortable existence. Their marriage is filled with love, companionship, and humor, but after years of being together, they have settled for contentment and security over excitement. Their life is thrown out of order when Margot falls in love with a handsome and charismatic neighbor (Luke Kirby), and she is forced to choose between the comfort of the familiar and the exhilaration of the unknown.
Writer-director Sarah Polley's follow-up to her acclaimed debut feature Away From Her is a quirky, sexy, and uncommonly heartfelt look at the evolving nature of love and the difficulty of sustaining a relationship over time. Featuring wonderfully layered and deeply felt performances from its talented cast, including standout work from Sarah Silverman, Polley's film offers a novel examination of love and marriage that feels utterly unique and honest. Prepare to be moved by this funny, bittersweet portrait of a flawed but thoroughly loveable woman who is doing her best to find joy in her life.
