See You in the Morning
Just when you thought it couldn't happen again.
Three years after his divorce from his model-wife is the psychologist Larry Livingstone ready for a new commitment. He falls in love with the young widow Beth who has two children. But Beth and the children are still in mourning over their dead husband and father and Larry finds it a bit difficult to penetrate their reservations. Larry himself has to deal with his ex-wife and his love for his own two kids. Slowly both Beth and the children realise that they have to go on with their lives and that they have been giving a second chance.
See You in the Morning offers a multifaceted examination of mature relationships where children are part of the picture, depicting middle age love and the process of families morphing into new constellations. Full of well articulated talk about feelings it's thoroughly serious but thanks to its warm, occasionally humerous tone, in a non-heavy way.
