About THE WOMEN

What happens when you combine a brilliant, all-female, all-star cast, headed by Meg Ryan and Annette Bening; celebrated comedy writer/director/producer Diane English (“Murphy Brown”); and a classic story about a circle of New York friends? The answer is THE WOMAN, 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, THE WOMEN whisks us into a busy pocket of Manhattan society, where the publishing, fashion and finance industries play. At the centre of the tale is Ryan’s character, Mary Haines, a thoroughly modern woman suddenly confronted with an age-old dilemma: a cheating husband. The ladies in her life swiftly rally to Mary’s side, led by her best friend, Sylvie Fowler, a dynamic magazine editor played by Bening. But when Sylvie betrays Mary in a Faustian bargain, the entire group is shaken to the core – and two women face the most painful breakup of all – their friendship.

Like its predecessors, THE WOMEN unfolds in an entirely female world; men are richly portrayed, but are never seen onscreen. Making her feature debut, English creates a multi-generational tapestry that encompasses post-feminist baby boomers, post-menopausal women and pre-teen girls. Fittingly, THE WOMEN boasts one of the most impressive rosters of female actors ever assembled on film. Joining Ryan and Bening in the principal cast are Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett Smith, Candice Bergen, Better Midler, Cloris Leachman, Carrie Fisher, and Debi Mazar.

In creating a 21st Century version of THE WOMEN, English maintains the wit, pacing and outrageousness of the original while reflecting the immense changes to women’s lives since the 1930s. And while Luces’ play was a poison pen letter to the society women she loathed, English’s film is a valentine to today’s woman, an appreciation of her efforts to navigate a complex web of choices, roles and responsibilities. English’s women are a diverse lot, professionally, economically and ethically; not all of them arte married, nor are all of them heterosexual. What they are is funny, enterprising and very protective of their own. THE WOMEN portrays their troubles and triumphs with a gimlet eye and generous heart; it is a comedy of both style and substance.
