2007
Rating:
PG-13
In the Land of Women is a dramatic film directed by Jon Kasdan that centers on Carter Webb (Adam Brody), a young soft-core porn writer who leaves Los Angeles in a bid to reclaim himself after his starlet girlfriend Sofia (Elena Anaya) unceremoniously dumps him. He goes to Michigan in order to care for his mentally unstable hypochondriac of a grandmother Phyllis (Olympia Dukakis) while hoping to finally write the fictionalized biographical story that has been gathering dust. As he cares for her, he meets Sarah Hardwicke (Meg Ryan), a friendly neighbor and mother of two daughters, teenage Lucy (Kristen Stewart) and precocious Paige (Makenzie Vega). Sarah, Lucy, and Paige help pull Carter out of his depression just as he helps them deal with Sarah's cancer diagnosis and Lucy's high school dramas. Carter slowly becomes a part of the Hardwicke girls' lives as he begins to learn about the regrets that a person can have when they do not fully embrace what they truly want.moreless
