The Women

The new comedy about finding out what you really want.


The Women
This update of a play and movie from the 1930s has had a mixed reception. The storyline, a la Sex in the City, revolves around four women and their personal problems. The main thread is about a woman who thought she had it all until her husband started having an affair with a perfume saleslady. This development forced her to re-examine her life and head off on a new course. Meanwhile her influential fashion guru friend begins to realise that maybe she is not so influential after all.

115 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 13 (Language).
Comedy, Female interest.

Roger Ebert quote iconWhat a pleasure this movie is, showcasing actresses I've admired for a long time, all at the top of their form.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconThis film is ridiculous — the average episode of Sex and the City plays like Italian neo-realist drama by comparison.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconWhile the dialogue lacks some of the crispness of Sex and the City, the film as a whole proves to be more tolerable because the characters aren't as fundamentally repugnant.

Peter Travers quote iconThink Sex and the City without the sex.

Tomatometer quote iconThe Women is a toothless remake of the 1939 classic, lacking the charm, wit and compelling protagonists of the original.
