David asked for the divorce following an affair he had with who Amy considered a friend. Knowledge of the affair and David asking for the divorce came out of left field for Amy, who thought she had the perfect marriage. In her surprise and shock about David, she left David basically with the clothes on her back, and has not asked for anything in the divorce settlement. Three months later, she is still in a depressed state, not leaving the house and not knowing what to do with her life.

Great evening movie to watch ...
24 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

i'm not use to writing reviews but hey, this is a really good watch, interesting movie, great cast, i loved it. @ least it's a story we can all relate to, i think Melanie Lynskey Killed it, best role i have ever seen her in. as the movie progress you get captured in the story telling and you can't just wait to see what happens in the next scene, not the kind of movie you'll fall asleep watching. very good acting, and don't expect to see some wild "sex scenes" when i read the plot initially my mind went straight to seeing Melanie Lynskey "wildin out" i know, i know .. but overall the movie is great, I loved it, go see it.
