Mister D: Someone asked me about the plot of this movie and this is the best I can find. The movie will be contemporized as opposed to being a period piece set in the 30’s like the original. But just like the groundbreaking original….you should see no male actors. Just good old fashioned cattiness between girlfriends. I’d love to see an all gay version of this one day between bitchy queens…of course, I would be the bitchiest of the bunch….:-)
Veteran producer-director Diane English (The Lathe of Heaven, Murphy Brown) helms this contemporized remake of George Cukor’s beloved proto-feminist comedy-drama The Women (1939), an adaptation of Claire Booth Luce’s play.
The English version follows the gossip, bitchy wisecracking, and overall disillusionment that erupt among a group of socialite friends when their dearest and most envied learns of her husband’s marital infidelity at the hands of a backstabbing shopgirl.
The all-female cast is fronted by Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Candice Bergen, with supporting roles inhabited by Bette Midler, Cloris Leachman and Carrie Fisher. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
