What happens when you combine a brilliant all-star cast and a classic story about a circle of New York girl friends? The answer is The Women, a smart, sparkling comedy about contemporary womanhood and the power of female relationships. Based on George Cukor's 1939 film and Clare Boothe Luce's 1936 stage play, this £3.7 million UK box office smash will be released by Entertainment In Video on DVD from 16th March 2009.
Directed by Diane English, creator, writer and executive producer of the multi award winning comedy series, Murphy Brown, The Women are played by the crème de la crème of Hollywood actresses. Included among the stellar line up are Meg Ryan (Sleepless In Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, The Presidio); Annette Bening (The Grifters, American Beauty); Candice Bergen (Carnal Knowledge, Sex And The City, TV's Boston Legal); Carrie Fisher (Star Wars trilogy); Eva Mendes (Training Day, Hitch, Stuck On You); Debra Messing (TV's Will and Grace, The Wedding Date); Bette Midler (First Wives Club, Ruthless People, Beaches) and Jada Pinkett Smith (The Nutty Professor, The Matrix Revolutions, Collateral).
In New York City's modern whirl of fashion and publishing, Mary Haines (Meg Ryan) seems to have it all - a beautiful country home, a rich financier husband, an adorable 11-year-old daughter and a part-time career creating designs for her father's clothing company. Her best friend, Sylvie Fowler (Annette Bening), leads another enviable life as a happily single editor of a prominent fashion magazine. She owns a huge wardrobe of designer clothes and is revered as an arbiter of taste and style.
But then Mary's husband begins an affair with Crystal Allen (Eva Mendes), the perfume girl from Saks Fifth Avenue. Suddenly all hell breaks loose as Mary contemplates the fate of her marriage and her circle of tight-knit friends question their own friendships and relationships.
