Based on the novella by Steve Martin

Ray Porter is a button-down 50-something executive who reaches out to a much younger woman as his Los Angeles playmate. Mirabelle a 20-something with a pile of promises, debt, and depression, fades away into a slow corner of Saks, while trying to sell unneeded formal gloves. She's a wisp of a person, with a cat who doesn't love her, and when she finds a suitor, it's Jeremy, a scruffy artist who babbles on about speakers. When the gentlemanly Porter calls, his appearance in her life begins to make her whole. It also immediately sets her up for sadness - Ray thinks of Mirabella as a precious outlet for sex, while Mirabelle, very mistakenly, sees Ray as a potential lifelong mate
