Rate-A-Trailer: The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee


First, let’s get a few things out of the way. Any trailer where Keanu Reeves’ acting looks good, Julianne Moore’s hair looks bad (nay, awful), and Blake Lively is a standout amongst an emsemble cast that also includes Winona Ryder, Zoe Kazan, Monica Belluci, and Maria Bello, throws us for a loop. Moving on. Rebecca Miller’s film — obviously chasing the more cerebral end of the adult female audience tapped by Sex and the City and Mama Mia! — is helmed by Robin Wright Penn who plays Pippa, a middle-aged woman going through an existential crisis. We’re guessing it’s because she’s married to an old like Alan Arkin.

As Vulture says, it looks “pleasantly agreeable,” which is more than can be said for many of the films peddled to this demo. Here’s hoping that it’s much darker than they’re making it look — we can handle it.
