About the Movie
When two American sisters become caught up in the intimate intrigue of Paris, cultures and human passions collide. Le Divorce follows the journey of Isabel Walker (Kate Hudson), a quintessential young Californian newly arrived in the City of Light to visit her pregnant sister, Roxanne (Naomi Watts). A darkly romantic poet, Roxy has just been jilted by her scoundrel husband, Charles-Henri de Persand, and it appears they are headed for "le divorce." Meanwhile, Isabel finds herself falling for a married French diplomat who just happens to be the uncle of Roxy's soon-to-be-ex! Based on the best-selling novel by Diane Johnson, Le Divorce is a new twist on the classic American-in-Paris theme.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Features a number of very good performances.
Rotten: Should have been a smart bit of cinematic froth but instead sinks like an overworked souffle.
Rotten: Characters are left half-developed or undeveloped so that as much plot as possible can be crammed into two hours.
Rotten: A decidedly mixed affair that wavers between hopeless melodrama and bland comedy of manners, scoring few points in either area.
This movie stinks. If I could I'd give it NO STARS, but since I have to give it something I give it one. Don't waste your money.
Good movie, but not what I expected
This film is great. It has complex and interesting plot with real life social themes. It is NOT a comedy. I don't know why, but for some reason I thought it was. There is not one funny moment in the movie. It is a very good film, but it is not comedic, which is fine. So, go into in knowing that it is a serious movie and you will enjoy it.
The story was awful, the acting was acceptable.
