Sept. 29
By Beth Accomando and Cinema Junkie by Beth Accomando

In the film, Bernadette (Kathy Baker) cooks up the book club idea as a means of distracting Jocelyn (Maria Bello) from the recent death of her dog. But it quickly turns out that everyone needs a little distraction. Sylvia (Amy Brennemen) has just been dumped by her husband (Jimmy Smits); Prudie (Emily Blunt) has just discovered that her husband (Marc Blucas) cancelled their Paris trip so he can take a client to the NBA playoffs; and Allegra (Maggie Grace), Sylvia's daughter, is trying to cope with her parents' separation. Oh and then there's Grigg (Hugh Dancy), a young man that Jocelyn impulsively invited into the club to round out the group.
