The Rebound (2009)
She`s Still Got It. He`s Just Getting It.
The Rebound movie review: A housewife and mother of two children, Sandy (Catherine Zeta-Jones), discovers that her husband has been unfaithful. After a hasty divorce, she decides to leave home and go to New York City with her young son and daughter. There they begin a new life. Sandy quickly rents an apartment above a coffee house and befriends one of the waiters, Aram Finklestein (Justin Bartha). Aram, at 25, is not sure what he wants to do with his life although he has a college degree and a tendency towards women studies and feminism. Still, he decides to babysit Sandy's children ultimately becoming their full-time nanny. He develops a close-knit relationship with both children and a chemistry starts to brew between Aram and Sandy ensuing in an awkward sexual encounter one of the children witnesses. Notwithstanding, they start to date and after two months it would seem they are perfect together. Until one day Sandy feels nauseous and suspects she is pregnant. Aram is thrilled and looks forward to raising a child with Sandy. But later a doctor confirms to the couple that Sandy is not really pregnant, but at 40 she may still conceive. As they leave the doctor, a fight breaks out between Aram and Sandy, with the latter confirming that she thinks it's ludicrous that the two of them, with an age difference of 15 years, would ever be happy together. After the break-up, Aram decides to travel the world and to improve the lives of others. Sandy gets promoted at her job and after five years have passed, the two share a chance encounter in a restaurant. Aram reveals he has adopted a young boy from Bangladesh and is still single. Sandy, who was celebrating her promotion with her children and a colleague invites Aram and his family to join them. The film ends as the two hold hands underneath the table whilst their children start to bond.
