LOVE AND OTHER IMPOSSIBLE PURSUITS Movie Pictures with Natalie Portman
Check out a couple of pictures from LOVE AND OTHER IMPOSSIBLE PURSUITS starring Natalie Portman, Scott Cohen, Lisa Kudrow, Charlie Tahan, and directed by Don Roos.
I first heard of this film back in February when I posted some pictures from the set with Natalie Portman and Scott Cohen, but at the time the movie was called 17 Photos of Isabel. Now it seems that they changed it to the original title of the book that it is based on. Either way, I’m sold.
Unfortunately, there is no release date for the film yet, but you can catch it at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival this month.
Love and Other Impossible Pursuits Synopsis: Families never turn out quite according to plan, and Emilia Greenleaf (Portman) certainly never imagined herself the shunned stepmother. But after winning Jack (Scott Cohen) away from his wife Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow), she finds herself immersed in the cross-currents of a new hybrid family. Now second wife to her former lover, she’s forced to work out new relationships with her unco-operative stepson and his acerbic mother, who is still very much in the boy’s life.
Shadowing Emilia’s every attempt to get to know the stubborn, precocious young William (Charlie Tahan) is the unbearable loss of a baby she and Jack had hoped would cement their new marriage. Ostracized for wrecking Jack’s previous life and berated by Carolyn at every opportunity, Emilia increasingly distances herself from Jack, and is in danger of drowning in domestic disappointment.
