In the Land of Women teams Adam Brody with Meg Ryan and Kristen Stewart in a delayed coming-of-age story. Kidzworld has the review!

In the Land of Women follows Carter Webb (Adam Brody) as he moves from LA to suburban Michigan to care for his ailing grandma. His life will never be the same after it becomes entwined with the lives of the family across the street. Check out what Kidzworld has to say about this chick flick!

In the Land of Women - Welcome to Suburbia

Struggling LA writer Carter Webb decides to flee La-La Land for suburban Michigan after a series of disappointments, not the least of which is being dumped by his model girlfriend. He moves in with his ailing grandma and quickly becomes friendly with a housewife named Sarah (Meg Ryan) and her two daughters. Sarah has problems of her own, including a cheating husband and a recent breast cancer diagnosis.

In the Land of Women - Little Women

As time goes on Carter becomes flirtatious with both Sarah and her teenage daughter Lucy (Kristen Stewart). Carter is pretty confused about whether he should pursue either age-inappropriate relationship. Either way, things will surely end badly for everyone involved. On top of all this drama, Carter has to deal with his senile grandma as she becomes less and less lucid.

In the Land of Women - Bottom Line

In the Land of Women has a few touching scenes and some insightful dialogue, but - for the most part - tries too hard to be quirky and "arty" and ends up feeling about as deep and personal as a Hallmark card. Poor Meg Ryan's face appears to have be nipped and tucked into expressionless disrepair, but she manages reasonably well with what little movement she has left. Adam Brody also puts in a solid performance in his standard so-nerdy-he's-cool role that, while it feels a little too familiar, is thoroughly likeable. Take our advice and wait until In the Land of Women is In the Land of DVDs before checking it out.

In the Land of Women Rating:3
