Review: The Other Woman

 The Other Woman

Genre: Romantic Drama
Length: 119 Minutes
Rating: R
Big Names: Natalie Portman, Lisa Kudrow
IMDB Score: 6.3 (out of 10)

Synopsis: Natalie Portman is the affair turned wife of a lawyer and stepmother to his son.  The couple's attempts at their own child end in tragedy and Portman is forced to deal with the death of her infant daughter while withstanding the taunts of her husband's ex-wife and her stepson.

Review: Emotionally devastating.  That's the only way I can describe this movie.  I love movies like that.  Kudrow's character is one of the most vicious that you'll ever see and her digs at Portman's character are downright horrible.  A slow paced movie that not a lot of people will relate to, but definitely worth a watch.

Acting: 10/10 - Superb.

Quality Within Genre: 10/10 - Excellent.

Entertainment Value: 8/10 - The slow pace will turn off some.

Realism (Within the world defined by the movie): 10/10 - Good.

Rewatch Value: 7/10 - One of those movies that is great to see once, but not worth much in watching again.

Total: 9.0/10
