IFC to Release The Other Woman, Starring Pregnant Natalie Portman

Thompson on Hollywood

Just as we are all trying to get used to the idea of wraith-like Natalie Portman as a pregnant soon-to-be new mom, she turns up pregnant in a movie filmed two years ago that was recently picked up by IFC, The Other Woman. Written and directed by Don Roos (The Opposite of Sex) and produced by Marc Platt (Wanted), The Other Woman stars Portman as a woman trying not to be a wicked stepmom. See the trailer below.

Taking advantage of Portman’s heightened profile due to her Oscar contending role in Black Swan–in which she stars as a ballerina opposite choreographer Benjamin Millepied, the father of her unborn child–IFC will release The Other Woman on exclusive premium on demand Jan. 1 and in theaters February 4th.

Does anyone know the name and/or song that starts at the 1:27 mark of the film.


I too read about the TIFF ’09 mixed to bad reviews of this, but as I am a Roos fan, I’m glad things are working out to get this film a release. Ms. Portman’s getting a whole lot of big screen time the first half of ’11, between this and Hersher, Your Highness, Thor and No Strings Attached.


Dictionary definition:
1. the apparition of a person living or thought to be alive, supposed to appear around the time of his death
2. a ghost or any apparition
3. an insubstantial copy of something
4. something pale, thin, and lacking in substance, such as a column of smoke
so… what the heck do they have against this description for someone heretofore thin and ethereal in appearance? I don’t get where it’s an insult?
BTW Also saw this Don Roos film at TIFF 09 and though I’m a big fan of his and hers, found it a very incomplete and disappointing effort

Anne I always thought of you as a journalist with integrity…I am sorry to see how wrong I was.
That is an awful way to describe Portman or anyone else.
Shame on you.


I saw this premiere at TIFF in 2009 – under the title of ‘love and other impossible pursuits’… I have been waiting for it to get picked up. Portman was phenomenal in this role – definitely worth seeing.


I don’t know wha your problem is with Portman, Anne but wraith-like is a very insulting way to describe someone.
