]]>newly engaged actress has no shortage of films coming out in 2011, and this one certainly isn’t aiming for “most lighthearted.”
It starts out with a bit of a thriller tease, pitching Portman’s character as a seasoned temptress going after her coworker, Scott Cohen — who, if you’re anything like us, you most remember for playing Max Medina on “Gilmore Girls.”
But it turns out they have a healthy relationship. They get married and have a baby.
Then their baby dies. And she has a real hard time adjusting to married life and her new status as a stepmother with all of the fresh emotional baggage — and her husband’s ex, played quite angrily by Lisa Kudrow.
