Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) writes, directs and stars in this satirical comedy about fortysomething workaholic Violette, who finds romance while on a spa vacation — but whose new beau soon has doubts when he discovers Violette’s unusual relationship with her 20-year-old son. Her performances in the films of Jean-Luc Godard and Krzysztof Kieslowski made Julie Delpy a European art-house star, but it was her work in Richard Linklater's Before... trilogy that earned her so much love from audiences all over the world.

With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness (Lake Bell), Jane is now, of all things, the other woman.
