Interesting movie about a woman Mavis Gary (Theron) that has focused on her career and has put off starting a family. This brings her from the big city back to her small home town. She tries to reconnect with her old flame and the only problem is he is married plus he has a young child. She is drinking too much and not grasping the idea that her old flame maybe happily married. She tries her best and Buddy Slade (Wilson) tries to be polite but he is uncomfortable with her advances. This movie has some very uncomfortable scenes and Charlize Theron gives an incredible performance that should have been noticed by the Oscar crowd.
