What if now was the time to start over?
This is an engaging, delightful light comedy for women about women, no wonder so many reviewers didn't like it - misogyny is so tedious - it's not about, nor for men. The only shame is that there aren't more films like this and that this curio, (as it is so rare for a film to have a menopausal woman as it's subject) hasn't been lauded by the PC lip service payers, as there is a genuine need for this type of film for women. At the same time, this comedy is light and sunny, a reassuring treat for every woman who faces 'the change' eventually. When it hit my mother, I mean hit, it can devastate, she said,'no-one told me it would be like this, one minute i'm beautiful & men won't leave me alone, next they want to run me over & am growing hair in places I didn't think possible. No-one tells you!'
Humorous & charming & very enjoyable, this tale needs to be told & it's been told here well.
Direction, acting, everything about this gem is extremely well done and the result is it feels fresh, filled with wry humour, enlivening and real. Those that have called it a bore etc probably don't like women that much either.
Highly recommended to all women, it's about you and your life.
