Netflix Synopsis: Thirtysomething couple Michael (Zach Braff) and Jenna (Jacinda Barrett) grapple with parenthood and other life-changing events in this coming-of-age ensemble drama, a remake of Italian director Gabriele Muccino’s film L’Ultimo Bacio. Instead of pushing him toward the altar, Jenna’s impending pregnancy has only made Michael feel more trapped. So when he meets flirtatious college student Kim (Rachel Bilson), he’s tempted to stray.

This was the darkest movie was saw during the break. I can not say that I could relate to the characters, but the storyline was interesting and thoughtful. It was provocative and produced more conversation with my wife than any of the other movies combined. The thing I did not like about this movie was the suddenness of the “flirtatious college student” was just not believable. Of course, it affected the rest of the movie, but because the topic was important and interesting, I tried to not let it bother me.

In a movie like this, it is hard for the outcome to match your expectations. But this movie did its best to emulate the reality. Life is not neat and clean and this movie knew it. I would be curious to hear what other people think about how this movie ended and what you would do. Watch it and let me know here!
