The Private Lives of Pippa Lee

2010-01-18 08:24

What it's about:

From all outward appearances, 40-something year old Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn) leads a charmed existence. She is the devoted wife of an accomplished publisher (Alan Arkin) thirty years her senior, the proud mother of two grown children, and a trusted friend and confidant to all who cross her path. But when her husband spontaneously decides that they should leave New York for a retirement home as a "pre-emptive strike against decrepitude," Pippa finds her idyllic world and the persona she has built over the course of her marriage put to the ultimate test.

What the critics thought:

Pippa should be a career changer. Wright Penn's cards are finally on the table, and it looks like a full house.
-  Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine

"Pippa's crisis of guilt -- about troubled lives she couldn't fix and parts of her personality she rashly abandoned -- is ultimately swamped by Miller's own sketchy grasp of what's funny or heartbreaking or illuminating about her characters."
-  Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

"Wright gives the title character a complexity and emotional shading often missing in this kind of ensemble comedy/drama."
- Claudia Puig, USA Today

"A quirky look at women, family and Keanu’s bod (still hot). Satisfyingly meatier than your standard chick flick."
- Jane Crowther, Heat Magazine

After her much older husband forces a move to a suburban retirement community, Pippa Lee engages in a period of reflection and finds herself heading toward a quiet nervous breakdown

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

2016-10-14 07:38

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
