It’s not really complicated at all. It’s very simple. A woman played by Meryl Streep discovers that there is still something between her and ex-husband Alec Baldwin. In the process of trying to rediscover former glories she pushes the new man, Steve Martin, to the periphery and nearly out of her life. I enjoyed that the film was largely composed as a series of encounters between Steep, Baldwin, and Martin instead of filling the film with a lot of bullshit plot with sprinkles of actual conversation. However, the film still has issues that for me make it just passable. Rather then bitch about them, check out the film for yourselves. It’s better than a lot of stuff out there.
