I really liked this movie. A well told, well paced, thoughtful story. Kate Winslet plays a young, suburban mom who meets a very attractive dad at the neighborhood playground. She is married to an inattentive, internet porn obsessed consultant. He is married to a beautiful, breadwinning filmmaker (played by Jennifer Connelly). Their unsatisfying, mundane lives take an interesting turn when they start having an affair. Throw a neighborhood pedophile into the mix and you get something even more interesting (the pedophile is the same guy who played the punkass kid Tatum O'Neal fancied in the original Bad News Bears). Definitely worth getting on Netflix.
