Meet Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker) — wife, mother, career woman and juggler par excellence. Kate’s life is hectic, but it’s also pretty great. She’s got a wonderful husband, Richard (Greg Kinnear), an architect who has recently struck out on his own. She’s got two adorable children, Emily (Emma Rayne Lyle), who’s turning six, and Ben (Theodore and Julius Goldberg), a toddler who worships the ground she walks on. And she’s got a job she loves, as an investment manager at the Boston satellite of a New York-based financial firm. Kate travels frequently for work, but she also manages to be as involved in her daughter’s school and after-school activities as any stay-at-home mom. Colleagues, acquaintances and relatives invariably say the same thing when remarking on Kate’s ability to keep the different areas of her existence running so smoothly: “I don’t know how you do it.”
It’s a phrase that’s likely to be met by Kate with a polite smile, and by her best friend and fellow working mother Allison (Christina Hendricks) with a wryly raised eyebrow. The fact is, Kate can’t remember the last time she had an uninterrupted night’s sleep, and her to-do list is in a state of never-ending expansion. She sometimes arrives at work inadvertently accessorized with bits of her children’s breakfast — to the horror of her workaholic, child-phobic junior colleague Momo (Olivia Munn) — but keeps mum about her family life around her male co-workers. An intimate dinner with Richard tends to involve the microwave, and that home-made pie for Emily’s school bake sale?? A case of necessity, or maternal guilt, being the mother of invention…
After years of diligent toil, Kate scores a key victory at work when her proposal for a new investment fund gets an enthusiastic reception from the firm’s head honcho in New York, Jack Abelhammer (Pierce Brosnan). More good news: Jack wants to pitch the fund to a major client. But the timetable for making the pitch is short, and that means Kate will have to spend even more time away from home, ironing out every detail with Jack in New York. Meanwhile, Richard has his own good news: he’s landed the first big contract of his solo career, and it’s a make-or-break moment.
And with that, Kate Reddy’s juggling act moves onto the high-wire…No more submissions accepted at this time.
