We don’t know why she does it

OUT NOW! I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT is Sarah Jessica Parker doing what she knows and that's all.

Based on Allison Pearson’s 2002 novel, the comedy follows the life of glamorous Kate Reddy (Parker), a high-flying NYC finance executive who, as the family breadwinner, is torn between career and family. Though the storyline has the potential to offer a unique portrait of the 21st-century working mom, don’t expect any original, useful or cliché-free conceptions. Though it’s redeemed somewhat by Parker’s unwavering performance, those of you hoping to see her play something different than her SATC character will be sorely disappointed.

I Don’t Know How She Does It | Directed by Douglas McGrath (USA 2011) with Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Brosnan. Starts November 17
