Reviews

Rebecca Miller writes and directs this drama based on her own novel. Robin Wright Penn stars as the eponymous Pippa, who at the age of 50 seems to have everything in life: security, happiness, a brilliant publisher husband 30 years her senior and successful grown-up twins. But when her husband (Alan Arkin) first decides that they should both leave New York and move to a retirement home in Connecticut, and then embarks on an affair with a woman even younger than she is, Pippa finds herself re-assessing her place in the world and quietly spiralling towards a nervous breakdown.

Format: DVD
Written and directed by Rebecca Miller this film is well acted, poignant and extremely watchable. It concerns the life and times of the titular Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn), a woman of fifty who's recently moved to a retirement complex with her older retired husband Herb (Alan Arkin). Pippa's a reserved and enigmatic character but as her back story unravels via flashbacks it's easy to see why Pippa's chosen the path she has. The all-star cast which includes Keanu Reeves as a neighbour's drifter son, Winona Ryder as a needy friend and Julianne Moore as a figure from Pippa's past all add amazing support and special mention must be made of Blake Lively who portrays Pippa as a young woman.

Format: DVD
How many of us look back at our lives and reflect on our wild times and what it took to settle down? Most often, we might think it is luck that has brought us this far. And, when we found our life, were we happy, was this the life we really wanted or did we settle for this safer life of ours?

Pippa Lee, played by Robin Wright is fifty. Her husband, Alan Arkin, is thirty years older. They have moved from New York City to a retirement community in Connecticut. This is presumably to make life easier for both of them. However, Pippa is not happy, she does not have much to do now and we wonder, who made this decision to move? She had met her husband years ago when she was at the end of her wild drug, hippie stage and he had saved her. They had two children and were happy. Or were they? Pippa starts to sleep walk, she is filled with tension and stress her therapist tells her- she needs a hobby. She takes up pottery and is kicked out of class for calling the instructor names. She is unsettled and her past life catches up with her. Her mother who was obsessed with her as well as obsessed with the Dexedrine she was taking, her life with her aunt after she ran away from home, and the life she has now. She uncovers an interesting relationship of her husbands and finds one for herself. Pippa is on her way to finding her life.

This film written and directed by Rebecca Miller is filled with remarkable characters and actors "Zoe Kazan as Pippa's daughter, Grace, a headstrong photojournalist; Robin Wright as Pippa's kindhearted lesbian aunt Trish; and Julianne Moore as Trish's ferocious lover Kat, who enlists Pippa to pose with another woman for sadomasochist photos.

I bought this DVD after browsing Amazon, looking for something easy to watch. What attracted me was the cast - I'm a huge fan of most of the lead actors already and I was far from disappointed. Robin Wright is her usual watchable, understated self, ageing so gracefully it makes me want to scream...! Alan Arkin is as brilliant and curmudgeonly as ever; and Keanu Reeves is the real stand-out in the cast for me - natural, engaging and utterly believable. Why more directors can't let him just ACT, I don't understand; Ms Miller obviously knows how to coax the very best out of her performers. I was also interested to see Blake Lively in a role outside of Gossip Girl and, I have to say, I was reasonably impressed; she may just make a decent actress some day.
All in all, I adored this film; the final scenes left me with tears in my eyes - but tears of joy. Loved it. Buy it!

I read the book some time ago and only had the chance recently to see this film. I think the film adaption is very true to the novel. The cast is superb as was the film script. If you are into action-packed fast-moving films with lots of dialogue and quick edits, then this movie probably isn't for you. I thought the movie was excellent, intense and the novel's theme was captured poignantly and profoundly especially by Robin Wright Penn and Keanu Reeves.

Adapted from Rebecca Miller's novel is the story of Pippa Lee. Now she is about fifty, she recalls the old times and in the meantime she thinks to the future cause of what' s happening in her family.
I enjoyed this film very much. Time run easly. Robin wright Penn is delightful and a very good actress. All star cast is perfect in theirs characters.
I suggest this film. It's easy follow it with english subtitles: I'm italian. I'm learning english wathing film in the original. I'm a Keanu Reeves fan too: I collected all his films.In this film he's lovely. Essential, I date say.
sorry for my bad english. thank you.

I'm upset I spent £3.86 on this nonsense ! Slow paced and extremely boring ......... The cast line up was impressive though but the plot was mind numbing !

Excellent (and highly perceptive) look at a woman's life from a woman's point of view.
