Plots

Sarah Huttinger is a woman who learns that her family was the inspiration for the book and film "The Graduate" -- and that she just might be the offspring of the well-documented event. - Anonymous

Hunky NY lawyer Jeff Daly finally got engaged to fickle Sarah Huttinger, who presents him to her Pasadena family, who all soon take to him, for her sister's wedding to Scott. However, Jeff's clever counting makes Sarah realize her dad Earl isn't her biological father. As more clues from family point toward a suspect - successful author Beau Burroughs - she insists on meeting him. Only like her mother and grandmother, she has a one-night stand with Beau, which may well cost her Jeff. - KGF Vissers

Sarah Huttinger (Jennifer Aniston) is coming back to her hometown to attend her sister's wedding, bringing along her lawyer boyfriend Jeff (Mark Ruffalo). She expected to spend another visit with the family she doesn't feel equal to. She didn't expect to uncover the family's greatest secret: an affair her mother (Shirley MacLaine) had decades ago was the basis for the world-famous book "The Graduate". This news sends her on a whirlwind, leading to a passionate relationship with Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner), the very man that Sarah's mom got involved with.

Sarah Huttington, recently engaged, goes home to Pasadena with fiancé Jeff for a family wedding. She hears a rumor that "The Graduate" (book and movie) is based on her family. Did her grandmother and her mom have flings with the same man just before her parents married? Is she a strange man's child? Does this explain why she doesn't fit in? Was her mother happy? Is she also facing a loveless marriage? Where can she seek answers: her mother's dead, her father's a pleasant naïf. Ask her salty grandma? Better to ask the man in the triangle, the real Benjamin Braddock. With Jeff's blessing, Sarah heads for San Francisco, looking for the key to her past and to her future.
