I woke up Sunday and didn’t feel like doing a whole lot so I put on It’s Complicated, because it looked like a good movie to watch! Here is the Amazon description of the movie:
Two-time Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin star in this hilarious look at marriage, divorce and everything in between. Jane (Streep) has three grown kids, a thriving Santa Barbara bakery and an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, Jake (Baldwin). Now, a decade after their divorce, an innocent dinner between Jane and Jake turns into the unimaginable – an affair. Caught in the middle of their rekindled romance are Jake’s young wife and Adam (Martin), a recently divorced architect who starts to fall for Jane. Could love be sweeter the second time around? It’s… complicated! From writer/director Nancy Meyers comes the comedy that critics call “laugh-out-loud funny” (Rex Reed, The New York Observer).
I seriously LOVED this movie, but the reason I loved it so much was because I could relate to this movie. I don’t want to get too deep into conversation in case you haven’t seen this movie yet but let’s just say I know all too well what Meryl Streep’s character was going through in this movie and why she did the things she did!
I admire the character because she was strong enough to make the realization between reality and keeping her family together in the right way rather than following other thoughts. You see this was a great eye opening movie for me and it has only helped me determine where I am going in my personal and business life. This movie reminded me that I need to be strong and follow that “what’s best for me” attitude, because what is best for me will inevitably mean I am doing what’s best for my children!
So did you see It’s Complicated? Love or hate it? Could you relate to any parts at all? Ssshhh don’t give away the movie to those who haven’t seen it!
