Margaret Nathan (Parker Posey) is a disenchanted woman who finds a new lease on life through a seductive 18th Century French diary. Set in two time periods – contemporary Manhattan and the 18th Century French countryside, Margaret writes the adaptation of the diary into a novel. Becoming immersed in her writing, she begins to question her marriage as well as her philosophy on life. When she suspects her husband (Jeremy Northam) of infidelity, she turns to her sister (Elizabeth McGovern) and her best friend (Brooke Shields) for comfort, adventure and a new outlook on life.
