Watch: Natalie Portman in 'The Other Woman' Trailer Premiere
Well this is quite interesting to watch… specifically after the big news from today. "I'm so happy that you're expecting!" Following the official poster debut earlier today for Don Roos' The Other Woman - formerly known as Love and Other Impossible Pursuits - IFC Films has premiered the official trailer (via Yahoo) for the indie relationship drama starring the newly engaged/pregnant Natalie Portman. This looks a lot more emotional and dramatic than I was expecting, but it actually looks surprisingly quite good -- I mean really good! I regret missing this and I'm now looking forward to it. 2011 is definitely the year of Natalie Portman!
Watch the official trailer for Don Roos' The Other Woman:
The Other Woman is written and directed by Don Roos (Bounce, Happy Endings, "Web Therapy"), based on Ayelet Waldman's novel Love and Other Impossible Pursuits. Portman plays Emilia Greenleaf, a lawyer who wins her married boss away from his wife (Lisa Kudrow), but must deal with the consequences including her newly acquired stepson and unexpected tragedy. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Fest back in 2009 but hasn't seen a release yet. We wrote a few weeks ago that IFC Films is finally bringing the film to limited theaters starting February 4th following an On Demand debut after New Years. Anyone going to see this?

After seeing Black Swan, I am willing to see any movie that Natalie Portman is in.

i didn't like it. the acting didin't seem very good (i didn't see portman as the wife at all). also, the story fell flat for me - i just don't care what happens to these characters (unlike, for example, the characters in "revolutionary road" - i was riveted by what was going to happen to that couple).

Looks like a must see. Some of the best movies are about normal people going through everyday struggles. Reality is stranger than fiction.

Jeez just have another baby! Was that a dick thing to say? I'll see it, looks decent. but it'll be a rent...Portman alone makes me wanna see it.

Nooooooooo! Well I guess I am not moving to Cali anymore, so sad you could have been my babies mama.

Don Roos is a great writer and director so I have faith this will be decent at the very least. Surprised you did list "The Opposite of Sex" as one of his films. His best.

Natalie Portman chooses another solid script. Bravo Portman. This is your year!

Looks good but at first I thought it was a spin-off to the other man which was awful.

#9 - "the other man" was MUCH better than this mess.
