Love Hurts

Showing at the Portland Women's Film Festival: Love Hurts, written and directed by Barra Grant

Synopsis from the movie's website:

Ben Bingham (Richard E. Grant) has slipped into a fossilized middle-age, unlike his vibrant wife Amanda (Carrie-Anne Moss). When she finally leaves him, Ben is at a loss. He drowns himself in gin and refuses to get out of his pajamas until his popular 17 year-old son Justin (Johnny Pacar) takes over. He changes Ben's "look" and pushes him out into the social scene. Before Ben knows what is happening, he is the most popular single man in town, pursued by his nurse (Jenna Elfman), his trainer (Janeane Garofalo), and karaoke-singing twins. Things change when Justin falls in love for the first time and now finds his father's lifestyle incredibly superficial. Ben is forced to refocus, recapture his humanity, his heart, and most importantly, his wife... who is now with another man.
