Set during the 1969 moon landing, this is a film about walking on the wild side... Woodstock, actually. A wife - married and a mother very young - suddenly longs for freedom and excitement. F & E well represented by Viggo Mortensen. Duh. Any woman watching this film will instantly understand why this loving wife-N-mother behaves badly. And there's a couple of scenes guaranteed to speed up feminine pulses.
Discounting all that though, I still like this film very much: it's really well written, I think; understanding and sympathetic of all its characters, male and female (the husband is particularly well played); these characters are all real and basically good people, wonderfully unusual that!; the film has a beautifully realized Jewish summer camp setting; and delicious touches of humor. This is a coming of age film x 2 as both mother and teen daughter grow-up. Highly recommended.
