Natalie Portman (Black Swan) in an "utterly fearless performance" (Rob Nelson, Variety) stars as a newlywed trying to cope with guilt and loss in this sensitive and compelling modern drama adapted by writer-director Don Roos (The Opposite of Sex) from the novel by Ayelet Waldman. Portman plays Emilia, a law-school graduate who falls in love with her married boss, Jack (Scott Cohen, The Understudy). After Emilia marries Jack, her happiness turns unexpectedly to grief following the death of her infant daughter. Devastated, Emilia nonetheless carries on, attempting to forge a connection with her stepson William (Charlie Tahan, I Am Legend) and to resist the interference of Jack's jealous ex-wife (Lisa Kudrow, Easy A" "The Opposite of Sex). Don Roos (Happy Endings, Bounce) demonstrates his keen eye for the nuances of love, loss, and rebuilding life in this heartfelt and touching drama.

Families never turn out according to plan, and in THE OTHER WOMAN, Emilia (Natalie Portman) finds herself the shunned stepmother. After winning Jack (Scott Cohen) away from his wife Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow), she finds herself immersed in the cross-currents of a new hybrid family. But shadowing Emilia's every attempt to connect with her stubborn, precocious stepson William (Charlie Tahan) is the unbearable loss of a baby she and Jack had hoped would cement their new marriage.
