The New Age (1994) DVD9
The Witners live in a posh Beverly Hills home and enjoy all the perks of a wealthy lifestyle. Then one day Katherine, played by Judy Davis, realizes that her graphic arts business is crumbling. Much to her dismay, she discovers that her husband Peter, played by Peter Weller, has just quit his $300,000-a-year job as an agent. How do they handle these shocks? She goes shopping, and he spends some time with his mistress.
At a party the Witners meet Jean, a New Age spiritual teacher, who tells Peter, "Nobody taught you to be a man. I see blocked energy. I see you trying to cancel yourself out." With his assistance, the Witners come up with a scheme to keep themselves afloat. They open a trendy and expensive boutique. Meanwhile, Katherine begins an affair of her own and informs Peter she wants a divorce.
