Barb has the perfect life, or so she's been told. Somewhere down the road, she's gained a husband, kids and a career, but lost her freedom and passion for life. In an attempt to recapture the innocence of her carefree days, Barb calls her high school pals Patti, Karen and Liz together for a weekend reunion. Loosening up with a few bottles of wine, each shares their secrets and dreams. But they soon discover that they share much more - burden, responsibility and a deep dissatisfaction for where their decisions have taken them. The best friends reach out to one another for collective wisdom and guidance. But, is it enough to save these four friends and set them back on their chosen paths? A Touch of Grey is a bittersweet comedy. A poignant, soul-searching journey that explores the question, can we have it all and still be truly happy? Written by

Sandra Feldman's warm sensitive and always comical film, A Touch of Grey, marks Feldmans debut as a writer, co-director, and producer portraying four middle aged females who reunite after many years to have a girls night out. Co-directed by Ian D Mah.
Feldman a family practitioner in Toronto, was compelled to share life histories that continue to repeat over many years of practise. Struggles and unseen, unspoken challenges of middle-aged females in our generation are clearly revealed. This is not just a chick flick on the contrary this is a must see for married couples and any serious relationship that can identify the personal conflicts in the family system and how it affects family, personal relationships, and need for compromise. More importantly to evaluate ones own needs over time and question our present direction.
After many bottles of wine the leader of the group acted by Maria Del Mar rehashes old flames and addresses her close friends misadventures. Katya Gardner, Kirsten Bishopric, and Angela Asher provide strong performances creating the tug-of-war of love for each other. This chemistry is laugh out loud funny, hilarious banter.
Del Mar believes she has life experience down, only to reveal she too has decisions to make and will she follow her own advice?
A wonderful Rorschach Ink Blot Test for a generation on middle agers.
A great film, a tight script, well acted performances by all four actresses. A deeply moving fun and witty film, it will keep you laughing and encourage self reflection, unless of course...................you have all the answers.
