Heartburn ★★★

The '80s (and Meryl, for that matter) sure loved dissolving marriage dramedies, didn't they?

It's hard to believe, given the leads, director, and writer, that this doesn't have more of a legacy. In a weird way, I think that's because it's too straightforward a tale of philandering, reparations, and loss.

Knowing how history is written—it's right there in the name, after all, it might also be because it's focused on the female side of the story.

I wouldn't say it's the best work from any of the key players, but it's certainly worth a look.
