Amanda Peet, the actor married to ‘Game of Thrones’ showrunner David Benioff, in a recent interview revealed the death of one of her favourite characters on the show was enough for her to consider divorcing her husband.
Amanda Peet is considering divorcing her husband, Game Of Thrones showrunner David Benioff, because he did not forewarn her of the death of one of her favourite characters on the show (spoiler alert for anyone who hasn’t seen season 5).

An especially strong script gives actors plenty to chew on in this comedy-drama, in which writer-directors Faxon and Rash (The Descendants) take an observant look at the awkward connections we make with each other. Using sparky humour and emotion, the filmmakers and cast create vivid characters we can't help but identify with, even when they do all the wrong things.
At the centre, Duncan (James) is a 14-year-old who dreads spending the summer at a beach house owned by Trent (Carrel), the cruelly critical new boyfriend of his mother Pam (Collette). When they arrive, they meet gossipy neighbour Betty (Janney), who has a whole season of neighbourhood parties planned. And her daughter Susanna (Robb) looks just about as miserable as Duncan does. As he tries to escape, Duncan finds a local water park run by colourful misfit Owen (Rockwell), who takes Duncan under his wing and offers him a summer job. And being on his own gives him the badly needed self-confidence to talk to his mother honestly, take on Trent and maybe even ask Susanna out on a date.
Even though this is essentially a standard coming-of-age movie, the script never falls into the usual cliches. For example, when Duncan's first kiss comes along, it plays out in an unexpected, realistic way. This is a generous, honest comedy packed with terrific characters and resonant situations. Supported by the all-star cast, James delivers an impressive performance as a sullen teen struggling to face the world around him , growing up while remaining awkward and likeable. Meanwhile, Stockwell keeps us laughing with a lively party-boy turn that's underscored with sympathy. Collette beautifully layers the repressive, conflicted Pam. Carell goes nicely against type as the cruelly passive-aggressive Trent. And Janney steals the show with the most hilarious lines.

Sandy Bigelow Patterson is a successful businessman who lives in Denver, Colorado but his world is turned upside down when his credit card gets rejected at the gas station. He discovers that several expensive transactions have been made on his card including a water sports excursion in Florida - where he has never happened to venture. After making several enquiries and informing the police, he is told that his identity has been stolen. His initial shock and distress is quelled slightly on seeing a mugshot of the thief: an eccentrically dressed, overweight, middle-aged woman who Sandy thinks he can take on himself and force her to relinquish his identity after she has spent thousands of dollars on shopping, luxury items and partying. However, she proves too much for Sandy to handle when he tracks her down in Florida, aggressively refusing to give up her hold on his life.
