Prime

 

Prime_ver4 The ever-unpredictable Meryl Streep is never believable as Lisa Metzger, a Jewish mother and therapist, but she’s nonetheless endlessly entertaining in this cautionary comedy about dating outside of your age range. Rafi (Uma Thurman) is a recently divorced 37-year-old Manhattanite who falls for would-be artist Dave Bloomberg (Bryan Greenberg) without knowing he’s the 23-year-old son of her caring therapist (Streep). Moods shift as the heady air of romance evaporates at the reality of everyday life. The uneven lovers must discover the cost and context of their attraction. "Prime" is an above average romantic comedy that still doesn't quite make the grade.

Rated PG-13. 106 mins. (C+) (Two Stars)
