Ben Younger
Released:
2005
Rating:
PG-13
Prime is a popular 2005 romantic dramedy written and directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room, The Car Thief and the Hit Man, The Hit Man and the Investigator). The story centers on Rafi Gardet, who is 37 years old and quite vulnerable after a recent divorce. She dives headlong into a relationship with David Bloomberg, who is 14 years her junior. He's a talented painter with little confidence in earning a living at his art and further saddled by a mother who insists he settle down with a nice Jewish girl. Enter Lisa Metzger, Rafi's therapist. Dealing with her divorce and her newfound love, Rafi regularly sees her, and of course, shares all her insecurities and intimate secrets. The upshot is that the therapist is also David's mother. No one is aware of this complication until Lisa figures it out during a session with Rafi. From that moment on, she has to decide to terminate her sessions with Rafi or do her best to keep her composure and continue the therapy. Meanwhile, Rafi and Dave encounter choppy waters in their new relationship, and their differing priorities come to the fore.moreless
