Life is a very strange thing. Sometimes, when we think the chips are down, they are actually up.
In The Object Of My Affection (1998), Nina (Jennifer Aniston) and George (Paul Rudd) think that their fate has changed for the worse. Nina is pregnant by her overbearing boyfriend and their relationship is heading south, fast. George has been dumped by his boyfriend and needs a place to stay. Nina has an extra room and George needs the emotional attachment that he had with his ex-boyfriend.
They do everything together, until their relationship and Nina’s pregnancy begin to get complicated.
What I like about this movie is not only are the emotions of the characters realistic, but for the time, the plot is quite progressive. Nina and George are the cinematic Will and Grace in a world that was not quite ready for that kind of relationship.
I recommend this film and I would love to live in Nina’s apartment.
