  In 1993, Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) is told he is going to be awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in honor of his career. His devoted wife, Joan (Glenn Close), accompanies him to Stockholm for the award ceremony, where she meets a journalist, Nathaniel (Christian Slater). Nathaniel, hoping to write a biography on Joe, presses Joan for details of his life and information about when the two first met. In the late 1950s, Joe was a creative writing professor and Joan was his student. The two began a passionate affair that would lead to a 40-year marriage in which Joan sacrificed her own writing talent to support that of her husband. Back in 1993, Joan begins to question her life choices leading up to this point, particularly excusing his infidelities and abandoning her own dreams and ambitions for the sake of his. Soon her support for his Nobel Prize sours as she sees it to be the epitome of every sacrifice she has ever made in order for Joe to succeed.

Based on the novel by Meg Wolitzer.

 Kayla (Elsie Fisher) has an online blog in which she tries to help other kids like herself navigate the social ins and outs of being a teen. She advises other kids to face their fears and let other people know the "real you." However, that's easier said than done, even for Kayla, who is mortified when she's labeled the "most quiet" of her eighth grade class. She considers herself funny, cool and talkative, although she admits she doesn't talk a lot at school. While trying to bond with other girls, she finds their attention is so far into their cell phones that they don't even hear her. She has a great dad, but she finds him embarrassing, so she limits communication with him, hoping instead to be accepted by the kids at school. Even though eighth grade can be hard, she looks forward to next year, when she'll be starting high school.
