The happiness of a young man's 29th birthday celebration is off-set by a pair of shock revelations in this romantic comedy that proves just how predicable life really is. Sylvain is preparing to savor the last birthday of his twenties when his girlfriend walks out on him, leaving him to endure dinner with his fractured family alone. As if being dumped wasn't enough to contend with on his birthday, depressed Sylvain finds his big day taking an even more surreal turn when his aging father Jean-Pierre announces that he and his younger girlfriend Evelyn are expecting. As hard as the news hits Sylvain, however, it's nothing compared to the way his sister Marion responds. Having spent a decade trying to get pregnant and twice that time resenting her father for divorcing their mother, Marion makes no secret of the fact that she sides completely with Evelyn's parents in objecting the May-December romance. Meanwhile, as family tensions continue to rise, expectant mother Evelyn begins to second-guess her decision to parent a child with a man who could easily be her father, and seems to place little value on commitment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
