This movie, starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and Lake Bell, has more layers than a seven layer cake without the icing on top! Co-host, Susan Ragazzo, and I dish, detail, and dissect the relationships and interconnections that make this film a delightfully complicated view into marriage and divorce.
No matter how you slice it, It's Complicated serves up a provocative look at the past, present, and future after stirring the characters together in life's sticky melting pot. Thrown in with the batter are new wives, old friends, and kids, making for a funny and poignant adult drama.
Tasty questions arise along the way in this film... Who are we in our relationships? Outside of them? Can one ever escape the labels we put on ourselves as women? Is it enough to start something new and move forward or do you first have to heal the past? Do people really change or do their roles change? Are there "right vs. wrong" choices?
Sex, age, men, self-discovery, guilt, confidence, and painful admissions all play a part in this bittersweet plot. Join us to unravel the meanings and search for answers to the many questions this film cooks up.
