Sarah Jessica Parker goes from Carrie Bradshaw, the fashionista, to Kate Reddy, the overworked mother of two in the comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It. Her character is a multitasking fiend who struggles to balance her busy personal and professional life.
The first trailer for I Don’t Know How She Does It was just released and it features an all-star cast. Joining Sarah Jessica Parker is Greg Kinnear, who plays her endearing husband, Kelsey Grammer, who stars as her boss, and Pierce Brosnan, who plays an important business client.
On the surface Kate Reddy looks like she has it all together but in reality she’s falling apart. She’s taking on more responsibilities at work, which is cutting into her family time. Soon everything begins to suffer and she realizes she’s headed for a mental breakdown before receiving wise advice from an unlikely source.
Women everywhere should be able to relate to Kate’s story. Being a great wife, mother and employee are things we can all understand on some level. Aline Brosh McKenna, who penned The Devil Wears Prada and Morning Glory, wrote this film so she knows a thing or two about being a working woman.
I Don’t Know How She Does It opens in theaters everywhere on September 16.
