Grace and Edward have been halfway happily married for 29 years, but Edward seems to be up to something. One day he calls the grown-up son Jamie into the house and tells first his son, then his wife that he will leave her because he has fallen in love. Grace doesn't want to admit the end of the relationship and after the first shock she starts to revolt against the separation with all means. And the separated couple carries everything out through their son.

Die wunderbare Annette Benning hat es hier nicht leicht als sitzengelassene Ehefrau anfang sechzig, die die Trennung nicht hat kommen sehen und sich mit Händen und Füssen dagegen sträubt. Hinzu kommt, dass ihr Ehemann ein Wortklauber ersten Ranges ist und beide ihren erwachsenen Sohn in das Drama ihrer Trennung verwickeln. Der Film ist so melancholisch wie glaubwürdig: Eine stimmige Studie über unwiederbringlichen Verlust und die Schwierigkeit, sich damit zu arrangieren.
