This is a bittersweet romantic comedy. I can't figure out how the name relates to the movie.

A 36-year-old just-divorced woman meets a 23-year-old man and they fall in love. The woman sees a therapist and keeps her up on the new romance. Eventually, the therapist realizes that the woman is dating her son and has ethical questions. The movie is about families, love, and relationships and how love is not always enough. Meryl Streep does a great job as the therapist while wearing weird jewelry. It was a pleasant movie.
