Director: Diane English
Synopsis: Mary Haines (played by Meg Ryan) is a successful and beautiful wife, mother and best friend. She seems to have it all until she learns about her husband’s affair. That’s when all of Mary’s friends (played by Annette Bening, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Debra Messing) gather together to help Mary get the ultimate revenge. Between their scheming and spying these girls know how to sniff out a liar and make them pay. This story follows the girls from a marriage heart break, to a friendship heart break and back again.
Review: The Women is a story told time and time again. But it has a special way of tugging at every woman’s heartstrings. That agonizing realization that your marriage is going down the drain and with it the rest of your life. And seeing friends band together to help a sister out in her time in need, and dancing around being to close but no close enough to Mary’s teenage daughter. This is a feel good film to empower woman about their own worth and saying that you can have your cake and eat it to, but sometimes in the end you won’t want it anymore.
