Movie To See: The Women
Posted September 14, 2008on:
Newly released movie, The Women, is already being called “a classic chick flick” and “good for women of all ages”. It stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Meg Ryan and Annette Bening. Here’s the plot:
In New York City’s modern whirl of fashion and publishing, Mary Haines seems to have it all–a beautiful country home, a rich financier husband, an adorable 11-year-old daughter and a part-time career creating designs for her father’s venerable clothing company. Her best friend, Sylvie Fowler, leads another enviable life–as a happily single editor of a prominent fashion magazine, a possessor of a huge closet of designer clothes and a revered arbiter of taste and style poised on New York’s cutting edge. But when Mary’s husband enters into an affair with Crystal Allen, a sultry “spritzer girl” lurking behind the Saks Fifth Avenue perfume counter, all hell breaks loose. Mary and Sylvie’s relationship is tested to the breaking point while their tight-knit circle of friends, including mega-mommy Edie Cohen and author Alex Fisher, all start to question their own friendships and romantic relationships as well.
For all who don’t know, it is a remake of George Cukor’s 1939 film ‘The Women’ and for the record, it’s a REALLY good movie! Check out the trailer so you can draw your own opinions:
