About the film:

What happens when your new best friend is your husband's mistress? Academy Award winner, Marcia Gay Harden stars in this marital comedy as wife Madelyn Reid, who accidentally learns of her husband's (Joseph Kell) infidelity when she saves his sexy young mistress Lucy, played by Leonor Watling (Talk to Her) from a bungled suicide attempt. The plot gets complicated when mistress Lucy begins giving Madelyn instructions on how to deal with an amorous co-worker, played by Aidan Quinn (Prime Suspect, Weeds).

The film was followed by a Q&A with actors Joseph Kell and Valerie Mahaffey. Look through photos taken at the event:
