Description
In About Schmidt, Albert Schmidt, proud traditional gentleman and lawyer of the old school, was almost down for the count. The wife he adored was recently dead, his once thriving practice had withered, he had stumbled into early retirement. And relations with his beloved and perfectly bred daughter couldn't have been worse: she mercilessly decided to marry one of Schmidt's former partners, a man odious to Schmidt for reasons too shameful to admit. The only glimmer of salvation was his unlikely, and mysteriously dangerous, love affair with Carrie, a Puerto Rican waitress younger than his daughterWithin the modest luxury of his Hamptons home, Schmidtie rediscovers domestic bliss, with Carrie. He keeps his own hours and steers his own course, even as he becomes increasingly ensnared by the odd Levantine billionaire Michael Mansour. (Is Mansour a real friend, or just a big cat playing with a WASP mouse?) Among Schmidt's other satisfactions is the thought of the cold dish of "I told you so" he could serve himself as his yuppie daughter's marriage founders on a scandal that engulfs the detested son-in-law. Where will it all lead? Can May and December remain on the same calendar as the sun sets? Will the irrepressible Schmidtie remain content in his deck chair indefinitely?
