Movie Review: Then She Found Me
Tonight, I watched a movie called "Then She Found Me". It had some great stars in it - Helen Hunt, Bette Midler, Colin Firth, & Matthew Broderick. Helen Hunt actually directed this film, too.
It's the story of April(Hunt) who is a 39 yr old teacher in a boring marriage who is desperate to have a baby. As her marriage crumbles & she finds someone she truly likes, she finds out she is pregnant! But, things aren't always as they seem. What she thought she wanted or didn't want, might not be what she wants now.
In the middle of all this, her birth mother finds her(Midler). And she goes down that complicated path of figuring out the relationship with her mother.
NY Times had a good article about the movie, Here. This was a combo between a drama & serious comedy. I liked it though. It was different.
