A classic story of a married woman who falls for a beautiful stranger. However, it is so much more than that, as it also contains lot of quirky humor, some great directorial work and cinematography by director Sarah Polley, and is brilliantly acted. Michelle Williams, playing the lead role of Margot, delivers one of the finest performances of her career and gives a very compelling and understated account of herself. Margot's husband Lou is played by comedian Seth Rogen, who is able to tone down the outrageous and off the wall comedy that he's done in the past and actually gives a fine acting performance you may not think he's capable of delivering. While on a plane Margot meets Daniel, played by Luke Kirby, and quickly develops an attraction to the handsome and blunt man. The two share a cab home and realize that they are close neighbors, leading Margot to orchestrate accidental meetings between the two, affording her an opportunity to get to spend time with the object of her affection without the guilt of lying to her husband about it. However, as time passes Margot is increasingly drawn more and more to Daniel, which is when we see the greatness in Williams' performance really start to take off, as she plays the role of a woman doing everything to fight her feelings so not to hurt her husband while at the same time has such strong desires for another man. Things eventually come to a head for Margot and her feelings towards her neighbor and she makes a choice as to what kind of life she wants to have. The audience ultimately gets a rather vague ending typical of indie movies that don't necessarily subject themselves to typical and predictable happy endings. It's an unsettling but fitting ending, as Williams plays the role brilliantly right up to the end.
