OPENS: Friday 11/27

Blake Lively ably plays the title character in flashback, but it's Robin Wright — as the panicked older Pippa — who rules this drama. She's pitch-perfect as a woman on the verge of a breakdown (or a sexual thaw) when forced to move to a retirement condo with her aging hubby (Alan Arkin). Plus, Maria Bello triumphs as Pippa's brittle, pill-popping mama.
