It's Complicated

Tuesday, 15 December 2009 @ 7:30 pm

Marcus Majestic Cinema

770 N. Springdale Road – Waukesha, WI

Plot Outline:

Writer/director Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday) directs Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin in It’s Complicated, a comedy about love, divorce and everything in between.

Jane (Streep) is the mother of three grown kids, owns a thriving Santa Barbara bakery/restaurant and has—after a decade of divorce—an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (Baldwin).  But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things start to get complicated.  An innocent meal together turns into the unimaginable—an affair.  With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness (Lake Bell), Jane is now, of all things, the other woman.

Caught in the middle of their renewed romance is Adam (Martin), an architect hired to remodel Jane’s kitchen.  Healing from a divorce of his own, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but soon realizes he’s become part of a love triangle.

Should Jane and Jake move on with their lives, or is love truly lovelier the second time around?  It’s…complicated.

Vandalism, Graffiti & Personal Safety Warning

The details… Within the confines of MIAD you live in an environment of almost complete artistic freedom, but that freedom falls away quickly when you leave the campus. Recently students have put themselves in dangerous situations and have been arrested for trespassing and graffiti while doing course related projects. If you have any question about whether your art project is remotely dangerous or illegal please seek clarification from your faculty, the Dean of Student’s Office or Campus Security first. There are usually safe and legal ways of accomplishing your goals if you seek permission first. Have a safe end of semester!
