Reese Witherspoon: 'Run Away From Men Who Can't Handle Your Ambition'

Reese Witherspoon: 'Run Away From Men Who Can't Handle Your Ambition'”

I can't imagine how hard it is to write your own parts and simultaneously have to change people's perceptions of what a woman of color is in today's society. Reese Witherspoon is dishing advice on how important it is to be a strong woman all the more if you want survive being in Hollywood. She has since produced acclaimed movies that put women at the center of the story, like "Wild" and "Gone Girl" (both of which received Oscar nominations in 2015).

In fact, the Legally Blonde actress credits her hubby for convincing her to step behind the camera. I hope this star and this new writer-director make a habit of pairing up.

But Home Again, also fueled by a rollicking soundtrack of oldies and newies, is a nonstop blast of happy, pretty, nice things. In L.A., she stumbles into a surprising hookup with an unlikely man and then must sort through her options and desires. "'Cause life is short, and you only get one of them". Comic mayhem escalates as Alice tries to juggle love, sex, a new career, and the challenge of raising children in this hectic environment. You're going to do this movie, and you're going to be great!' He gives me pep talks with a lot of sports metaphors that I don't always understand.

Certainly the mementos exert a pull on the young men. They're aspiring filmmakers who can't afford their shared motel room and are quickly installed in Alice's guest cottage.

Meyers-Shyer's modest innovation is to tweak romantic-comedy conventions so they encompass the kids. But I laughed through much of it, at barbed supporting turns from Lake Bell and Candice Bergen, and especially at young Harry's cornball stabs at seduction. Although the movie's climactic gesture is a rom-com staple, here it's meant not for Alice, but for one of her girls. Alice wants to reinvent herself as a decorator, but her father, now dead, was a director famous for movies he made 40 years ago, famous for his partnership with Lillian, and for the flirtations that ended the marriage. Mom, who has a producer role here, is clearly a major influence. Her film shares a look and a bop-along efficiency with her mother's work, as well as a somewhat blinkered understanding of socio-economic reality. And the film's empowerment theme manifests off-screen in what might be crudely called "the daughter also rises", a spin on the famous Hollywood nepotism quip "The son-in-law also rises" (apparently spurred by Louis B. Mayer, who hired his), as filmmaker Meyers-Shyer is blessed with such enviable biz pedigree. Image from epk.tv press site. Every studio passed but one. It's entirely understandable that the young man picks the former, and it's just as understandable that Alice blows up at him. "So many men think ambition is awesome and sexy!"
