Two women meet accidentally and form an unusual friendship. But one of them has a secret

This 2012 film has Marcia Gay Harden playing the wife whose husband is having an affair with a much younger girl. Two women who meet by chance when Madelyn (Marcia) accidentally land up in the same restaurant where her husband is having a cozy time with his mistress. After an altercation between the lovers, Lucy (Leonor Watling) tries to commit suicide, only to be saved in the nick of time by Madelyn.

Unaware that Madelyn is the wife of the man she is in love with, the two forge a friendship for bettering their respective love-lives. Hoping to keep a track of her husbands trysts with the  other woman, things work fine for Madelyn until Lucy forces her to play Lear in a amateur production.


The film largely belongs to Marcia Gay Harden and scores for genuine camadiere between the two women and there are a few heart touching moments which makes this watch worthwhile. Especially the scene where Madelyn makes Lucy rehearse for the play after the director blasts her performance. Watch this film to share the journey of Madelyn as she struggles with morality and betrayal.
