Eva Amurri Martino,
Originally a one-woman played written and performed by 'Lynne Adams', called "Two Faced". She wanted her sister, 'Brooke Adams', to play the leading role in the movie, so she wrote in a role for herself. She also created a role for her brother-in-law, Tony Shalhoub, who directed the film.

Although I am not a 40 something or even female, I loved this movie. It presents a fresh and honest take on women's issues, and at the same time provides some scrumptious slices of comedy....Shalhoub is unbelievable in this, maybe even better than in "Big Night"; he is the master of subtle humour imo. I liked what they did with the mockumentary angle; slightly frustrating (disorienting) for the first 10 minutes I'd say, but well worth hanging in there. The script is inventive and not predictable. There were one or two choices written for some of the supporting > characters that threw me a bit, but it didn't take away from the comedy, the sense of fun and artistry, or the moral statement that was being made.
This low-budget movie just had some kind of magic, integrity, brazenness, and uniqueness that really entertained me on multiple levels. Go into it expecting something a little different from the usual Hollywood/TV formula and you won't be disappointed.
