The Women

The Women


Meg Ryan and Annette Bening star in this comedy drama which seeks to reinvent a 1939 classic for a modern audience.


This stylish twist on the 1930s classic sees romcom veteran Meg Ryan lead a pack of four driven New Yorkers as they deal with the trials of friendship, romance and careers. Littered with razor sharp one-liners and quaffed, quotable characters, you will find no male characters whatsoever in Diane English’s celebration of female companionship in the city.
