Plot Summary: Aspiring Lawyer Emilia Greenleaf (Natalie Portman) thought she knew what she wanted when she went after the sexy, married Senior Partner, Jack Woolf (Scott Cohen) . However, she didn’t count on getting pregnant and married, and she certainly didn’t plan on having to forge a relationship with her highly strung 5 year old stepson, William..
Notes: – Jennifer Lopez was originally cast in the role and when she dropped out the production was in danger of being shut down. Natalie stepped in to star and produce.
– Was initially titled “Love and Other Impossible Pursuits” before becoming “17 Photos Of Isabel” and then finally returning to the original title for international release.
– Had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Variety, LA Times and The Hollywood Reporter loved it. But there were some very negative reviews as well.
