IT'S COMPLICATED

Production Information
Jane Adler (two-time Academy Award® winner MERYL STREEP) is the mother of three grown kids, owns a thriving Santa Barbara bakery/restaurant and has—after a decade of divorce—an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (ALEC BALDWIN). But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son's college graduation, things start to get complicated.

An innocent meal together leads to several bottles of wine, which in turn becomes a laugh-filled evening of memories about their 19-year marriage…and then to an impulsive affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness (LAKE BELL), Jane is now, of all things, the other woman.

Caught in the middle of this renewed romance is Adam (STEVE MARTIN), an architect hired to remodel Jane's kitchen. Also divorced, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but soon realizes he's become part of an unusual love triangle.

Should Jane and Jake move on with their separate lives, or has the passage of time made them realize that they really are better together than apart? It's…complicated. Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker NANCY MEYERS (Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday) brings moviegoers her latest film with an all-star cast. With It's Complicated, she directs a comedy about love, divorce and everything in between. Joining the three stars of It's Complicated are JOHN KRASINSKI (Away We Go, television's The Office) as Streep and Baldwin's son-in-law-to-be, Harley, as well as three up-and-coming performers who play the ex-couple's grown children—CAITLIN FITZGERALD (Taking Woodstock, A Jersey Christmas) as Lauren, ZOE KAZAN (Revolutionary Road, I Hate Valentine's Day) as Gabby and HUNTER PARRISH (17 Again, television's Weeds) as Luke.

Key supporting parts in It's Complicated belong to a who's who of veteran comedy performers. Portraying Streep's closest friends (and romantic advisors) are RITA WILSON (Old Dogs, Sleepless in Seattle) as Trisha; MARY KAY PLACE (Julie & Julia, television's Big Love) as Joanne; ALEXANDRA WENTWORTH (Office Space, television's Head Case) as Diane; and NORA DUNN (Pineapple Express, Bruce Almighty) as Sally.

Meyers is joined in production duties by Academy Award®-winning producer Scott Rudin (No Country for Old Men, Doubt, Julie & Julia), who has previously produced six films starring Streep. ILONA HERZBERG (The Manchurian Candidate, Rachel Getting Married) and SUZANNE FARWELL (Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday) serve as the film's executive producers.

The accomplished behind-the-scenes team of longtime Meyers collaborators includes production designer JON HUTMAN (Something's Gotta Give, What Women Want), two-time Oscar®-winning editor JOE HUTSHING (JFK, Born on the Fourth of July, Something's Gotta Give) and Oscar®-winning composer HANS ZIMMER (The Lion King, Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday).

Joining the crew for their first film with Meyers are two-time Academy Award®- winning director of photography JOHN TOLL (Braveheart, Legends of the Fall); Hutshing's fellow editor, DAVID MORITZ (Rushmore, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou); costume designer SONIA GRANDE (The Others, Vicky Cristina Barcelona); and Zimmer's fellow composer, HEITOR PEREIRA (The Canyon, Real Women Have Curves).
