Then She Found Me is a drama/comedy directed by Helen Hunt who plays
April Epner, a 39-year old kindergarten teacher in New York City who
suffers from a myriad of problems.
Based on the novel by Elinor
Lipman, Epner is a childless and confused woman who eventually
becomes pregnant to her husband after a hilarious bout of break-up
sex. What is so unique about this movie are the real-world
characterizations by the actors, especially by Hunt who really
transforms herself into the role.
Her mother Bernice Graces is the
extrovert compared to her daughter Epner and is played brilliantly
by Bette Midler who always lies to those around her, even stating
that her daughter was conceived during a one-night stand with Steve
Colin Firth once again plays the stereotypically White
Knight character who actually does his role justice in this strange
yet delightful and down to earth film about love, life and children.
