Hard Knocks

I'm going through a really hard breakup of sorts and this trailer seems perfectly fitting for today...

Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) met in high school, married young 
and are growing apart. Now thirty, Celeste is the driven owner of her own media 
consulting firm, Jesse is once again unemployed and in no particular rush to do anything 
with his life. Celeste is convinced that divorcing Jesse is the right thing to do -- she is on 
her way up, he is on his way nowhere, and if they do it now instead of later, they can 
remain supportive friends.  Jesse passively accepts this transition into friendship, even 
though he is still in love with her.  As the reality of their separation sets in, Celeste slowly 
and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship, and her decision, 
which once seemed mature and progressive, now seems impulsive and selfish. But her 
timing with Jesse is less than fortuitous.  While navigating the turbulent changes in their 
lives and in their hearts, these two learn that in order to truly love someone, you may 
have to let them go.
