Unsure of the next step

In ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’, Kate Reddy (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) devotes her days to her job with a Boston-based financial management firm. At night, she goes home to her adoring, recently-downsized architect husband Richard (essayed by Greg Kinnear) and their two young children. It is a non-stop balancing act, the same one that Kate’s best friend and fellow working mother Allison (essayed by Christina Hendricks) performs on a daily basis — and that Kate’s super-brainy, child-phobic young junior associate Momo (played by Olivia Munn) fully intends to avoid. When Kate gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, Richard also wins the new job he’s been hoping for. Complicating matters is Kate’s charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer (portrayed by Pierce Brosnan), who begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation. Tune in to the film on Star Movies on July 13 at 9 pm.
