FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE FEATURE NARRATIVE

SUBURBAN GIRL

TFF 2007 Directed by Marc Klein
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE SUBURBAN GIRL [TFF 2007]

Brett Eisenberg (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is struggling to make a name for herself in the cutthroat world of New York publishing. While working as an associate book editor, she meets the much older Archie Knox (Alec Baldwin), a powerful publisher at a different firm-also known for his trysts with younger women. Though she hesitates to get involved with this known playboy, his charm soon wins her over. Brett decides to stop playing it safe-with her career and with her heart. Before long she is being squired to the best New York literati parties by the handsome Archie, while he teaches her tricks of the publishing trade, introducing her to Pulitzer prize-winning authors and the doyennes who surround them. Brett falls in love, but as she and Archie struggle through the ups and downs of their relationship, she begins to wonder if her sudden arrival into the world of her dreams is what she really wants. Marc Klein, screenwriter of Serendipity and A Good Year, makes his directorial debut with this sharp script he also wrote. Based on the chick-lit phenomenon A Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Banks, this romantic comedy reveals that, while it can be nice to have someone more experienced guiding you through the pitfalls of life, success means a lot more when you find it your own way.
