Madelyn (Marcia Gay Harden) is a successful, self-possessed, middle-aged businesswoman – until she finds out that her husband’s late nights at work are actually intimate dinners with a sexy young aspiring actress, Lucy (Leonor Watling). When Madelyn starts stalking this new mistress, she witnesses what she thinks might be the beginnings of a suicide attempt and ends up talking her down. While Lucy is ignorant of Madelyn’s true identity, the two form a bizarre pact with unforeseen consequences. Matters are complicated further by an amorous coworker and an encounter with a handsome stranger (the ever delectable Aidan Quinn). Marcia Gay Harden gives a hilarious, touching and utterly believable performance as Madelyn, a woman on the verge who finds inner reserves of strength and sanity through an unlikely combination of whisky and amateur dramatics (she plays Lear). With pitch-perfect chemistry between odd couple Harden and Watling, a fine supporting cast, plenty of laughs, and a few pearls of wisdom, If I Were You is a charming look at the unexpected places that life can take us.

Director Joan Carr-Wiggin, Producer David Gordian, Actor Aidan Quinn, and Marcia Gay Harden are all expected to attend the Tuesday, Jan. 10th, 7:30 PM screening
