Released in the US in April 2007, 'In the Land of Women' was neither a critical or commercial success. This lead to there being no cinematic release here in the UK, for reasons which are beyond me. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and i think you will too.
It is very well cast, with a post-OC Adam Brody doing what he demonstrated so well in that shortlived show- deftly neurotic but sweet humour. basically he is playing a more grown up Seth Cohen which drew me to this film. Then there is a very heartfelt performance from Meg Ryan, who goes through a personal tragedy during the narrative. These two main protagonists display such convincing chemistry on screen that it makes the film a more believable and touching experience.
I loved that these two characters were so able to connect with one another, two world-weary souls reaching out to each other, culminating in a fond relationship. This friendship is the reason why this film works on all they levels it should.
I am baffled as to why this has been so overlooked and given poor reviews. It really is a very well done film which deserves all the fans it can and should get.
I enjoyed the understated humour and the storyline and felt i was able to connect with the two leads.
Dont get me wrong there are a few flaws. Some of the characters are underwritten, leaving a confusion as to what their purpose is. The film also deserves to be at least 20 minutes longer than it is so to flesh out its interesting characters in a more sufficient way.
All in all, this intricate film benefits from two strong leading stars (from different sides of the acting spectrum) and a plausible narrative which is both witty and wise.
This may not be the most groundbreaking 90 minutes of your time, but it is time well spent. This comes highly recommended.

Well to start off, I must say that if your a fan of Adam Brody you must watch this as hes in partically every scene. I kid you not! And whats better is the character he plays isnt all that different from Seth Cohen. Sure a little more sucessful with the ladies but whatever.

To the movie itself, i was pleasently surprised. It was sweet without being sugary, it was amusing without being stupid and it was believeable without being unentertaining. The casting is brilliant expect maybe Meg Ryan, whose preformance i felt lacked a little depth. But the the two girls playing her daughters made up for it.

I felt really good after watching this. I think it will give you the same feeling. Dont believe the bad hype. Give it a go dudes!

I picked up this DVD whilst food shopping, it was £4 and I thought it looked like a good Rom/com.

However when I started watching it I realised what a complete bargain I hand landed upon. Adam Brody is just fantastic and completely loveable and believable. Whilst Meg Ryan does what she does best and I can't see why anyone wouldn't like it.

Great story, nice heart felt moments, not to mention the cute little girl in it. I felt that I had learnt something from this film as well as enjoying the fantastic story.

My Thoughts: "In the Land of Women" is one of those 'one-in-a-hundred' movies that follow real life situations realistically and don't go to the predictable cliche that most romantic dramas seem to willingly step right into. Some may find the storyline drags a little, but I found it refreshing as a representation of normal life when emotional problems occasionally occur and how our lives intertwine with each other and are affected by those around us in the process.

Meg Ryan's performance here is spot on, although I found Kristen Stewart's performance a little stoic (as per usual, she seems to pick the characters who are quiet, intense and troubled and it gets old. This girl needs to stop playing "Bella Swan" and move on from stereotypical roles). Adam Brody here is a breath of fresh air who does not fall into the abyss of the usual leading man.

The Plot: Carter, a 26-year old screenwriter from L.A. is left speechless when his actress girlfriend Sophia dumps him out of the blue. Heartbroken and ambitionless, Carter moves state to live with his senile grandmother after his mother expresses her concern for the aging woman.

While living with his grandmother and writing softcore porn for a living, he meets Sarah, an attractive housewife who unbeknownst to him has just discovered she has breastcancer. Sarah is unhappy in her marriage, convinced of her husband's infedelity and struggling to connect with her intense and reserved seventeen year old daughter Lucy.

While he tries to reconnect to his distant ex-girlfiend, he unwittingly becomes more involved in Sarah's world, and eventually Lucy's world too, leading both to eventually understanding more about life - a task he cannot force upon himself.

An enjoyable film about reality and how people deal with real-life problems. Also stars Kristen Stewart who is rather underrated.
