Hallie Meyers-Shyer is a being made purely of the tepid sexual energy between smiling, well-dressed white people. She’s the daughter of anodyne comedy icons Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated) and Charles Shyer (Baby Boom, Father of the Bride), a progeny conceived through chaste, only-implied lovemaking, born with a part in mind for a middle-aged A-list actress. Her first words were INT. SUMPTUOUS, SUN-DRENCHED HOME – DAY. And now, her first outing as a writer-director is Home Again. It stars Reese Witherspoon as a recently-separated woman trying to deal with her ex (Michael Sheen) while taking on a new, much younger lover. Of course it does.
