Prime is a sophisticated, character comedy set in New York City about Rafi (Thurman), a recently divorced 37-year-old career woman from Manhattan, and what happens when Dave (Greenberg), a talented 23-year-old painter from Brooklyn, falls in love with her.

Prime looks at love from everyone's point of view--friends, relatives and in this case, Rafi's therapist (Streep)--and follows all who come apart, and some who pull it together, when two people fall in love.

Stratus Film's Prime, starring Uma Thurman and Meryl Streep, is written and directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room) and is produced by Jennifer Todd and Suzanne Todd under their Team Todd banner. The executive producers are Bob Yari and Mark Gordon. The film will be released domestically by Universal Pictures, with Focus Features handling all international sales.
