Maggie's Plan (2016)
Enter Ethan Hawke (John), who is married with two kids and a little bit self absorbed. As is his lovely wife, Julianna Moore (Georgette). Maggie is full of warmth and confidence in who John is, far more so than his wife, and he falls for that and she falls for him. This affair is consummated on the very day that Maggie has self-inseminated herself with her college friends sperm.
Fast forward a couple years, Maggie and John are married, and Maggie is doing literally everything. She is raising the kids (hers and John's), earning the money, and ferrying everyone around, and one say she looks up and doesn't want to do it anymore. Never fear, she has a plan for that too. It is a movie that is a little bit fun, a little bit serious, and a little bit mysterious.
