The movie stars Jennifer Aniston , Jake Gyllenhaal, Tim Blake Nelson, Zooey Deschanel, John C. Reilly and John Carroll Lynch. The movie was released on August 7, 2002.


Justine Last (Aniston) faces a boring life each day. Working at the Retail Rodeo discount store, married to her pot-smoking husband (Reilly), and dealing with the same people, same places, same everything. Until she meets fellow worker Thomas Worther (Gyllenhaal), who calls himself Holden, after Holden Caulfield (a character in the novel The Catcher in the Rye). The two become friends, but it isn't long before the two spark an affair that brings fleeting comfort for Justine as much as it threatens to ruin her marriage and reputation. As the affair heats into an obsession, Justine must decide whether to keep the life she has now or leave it behind forever.

The film derives inspiration and source material from The Sorrows of Young Werther, a loosely autobiographical novel by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about a suicide and unrequited love. This is especially notable due to Thomas's last name.
