Then She Found Me

helen_hunt.jpgI’ve never been a fan of Helen Hunt until I saw her adaptation of Elinor Lipman’s novel, Then She Found Me. Ms. Hunt wrote, directed, and starred in this gem of a film. Why is it so good? Well, Colin Firth and Bette Midler are excellent foils for Hunt’s character, a woman on the verge of being too old to have a baby, but who desperately wants one. Naturally, marrying the very funny Matthew Broderick (playing a mama’s boy at his deadpan best) is a great spur for everything that follows. It’s a film that touches all the right emotions.

I tried to rent this film on Netflix, but they did not have it. I have requested they rent it in the future. Thank you for the tip….
