Movie Review:- Celeste and Jesse met in high school, married young and are growing apart. Now thirty, Celeste is the driven owner of her own media consulting firm, Jesse is once again unemployed and in no particular rush to do anything with his life. Celeste is convinced that divorcing Jesse is the right thing to do -- she is on her way up, he is on his way nowhere, and if they do it now instead of later, they can remain supportive friends. Jesse passively accepts this transition into friendship, even though he is still in love with her. As the reality of their separation sets in, Celeste slowly and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship, and her decision, which once seemed mature and progressive, now seems impulsive and selfish. But her timing with Jesse is less than fortuitous.
Direction, Performance and Music:- Directed by Lee Toland Krieger and shot by David Lanzenberg, The story excels at depicting what happens when someone such as Celeste. Performance was excellent but script is a little too preoccupied with hitting the kind of predictable character.
Overall:- Good Timepass but not heart touching.
