It’s Complicated is a well cast comedy/romance starring Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep.

Written and directed by Nancy Meyers, the film follows a divorced couple who reignite their relationship even though one of them has remarried.

The couple’s complicated situation which also includes three grown up children presents a great opportunity for both comedy and drama; something Meyers took great advantage of – evident in the way the subject matter is handled.

For me, what makes It’s complicated work is Streep and Baldwin’s great chemistry. The supporting cast which includes Steve Martin, John Krasinski, Zoe Kazan, Lake Bell, Hunter Parrish and Caitlin FitzGerald certainly don’t hurt either.

I’m a big fan of Baldwin, thanks in large part to his great work as Jack Donaghy in 30 Rock. As for Meryl Streep, I almost feel like, to love film is to love her, so there really was no way I would have not watched the film.

Tune in for the subject matter and some good light hearted fun – should you be wanting that sort of thing.

Happy Film Loving
