Amusing, if morally problematic, New York-based story of a 37-year-old divorcee (Uma Thurman) who falls in love with a 23-year-old Jewish aspiring artist (Bryan Greenberg). Neither aware that he is the son of her psychiatrist (Meryl Streep) -- who is determined her son will marry within his faith, but finds herself with the ethical dilemma of helping her client or protecting her son. Ben Younger's directorial debut is well-acted, and has moments of charm, but is far too casual about the premarital affair, though the affair is at least grounded by real love and affection, and the ending is admirably realistic. Scattered profanity, crude language and expressions, frank sexual talk, several nonexplicit sex scenes, strongly permissive view of premarital sex, and infidelity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
