If you thought comedies starring women in their sixties were all gentle tales of jam and knitting, Book Club will definitely make you think again.
Diane (Diane Keaton), Vivian (Jane Fonda), Sharon (Candice Bergen) and Carol (Mary Steenburgen) have been members of the same book club for 30 years. Each of these women has reached a different bump in their previously straightforward roads: Diane’s husband has passed away; Carol’s romantic life with her husband is non-existent; Sharon’s been single since her divorce 15 years ago; and Vivian’s starting to wonder if rejecting the idea of marriage entirely was a mistake.
And then they decide to read Fifty Shades Of Grey (you can buy the movie trilogy on the Virgin Media Store). EL James’ saucy tale causes each of them to realise that there are things they should have been more open to in their lives, and that they do still have a chance at happiness.
But don’t worry: the film isn’t all whips and chains. Instead it takes a smart look at the struggle of keeping romance alive in your later years, poking fun at everything from online dating to Viagra. And the sparky leading ladies are complemented by a superb supporting cast, including Andy Garcia, Alicia Silverstone, Richard Dreyfuss and Don Johnson.
It’s one of the most refreshing comedies of 2018 – so discover what the next chapter holds for these ladies right now on the Virgin Media Store.
