THE OTHER WOMAN

THE OTHER WOMAN

SYNOPSIS

An extramarital affair blossoms into a marriage defined by tragedy and hardship in this emotional family drama from director/screenwriter Don Roos (Bounce, Happy Endings). When Emilia (Natalie Portman) met Jack (Scott Cohen), she was the other woman. In time, she became his only woman. But winning Jack’s heart was just the beginning. Shortly after attempting to start their new life together by having a child of their own, their newborn dies suddenly.

JOY’S REVIEW

The Other Woman is Natalie Portman’s latest film, and she seems to be everywhere. In this one, she literally plays the other woman, and it turns out that apparently, because she had an adulterous affair with her boss, that her child dies and she feels guilty about it. The problem about this movie is there’s really no one to like. Her husband’s an adulterer, Lisa Kudrow plays the ex-wife who’s a horrible human being. The kid is the only vaguely cute one, and he plays the precocious kid role, but there’s nobody to like in this movie. One star.
