Storyline

Michelle, Olivia and Lizzie were best friends in university. A team. But that was 30 years ago. One failed marriage, an empty nest and stalled careers-is there really life after 50? Each woman dreads an upcoming reunion and thinks the others are richer, happier and more successful. When the truth is revealed, the women reunite to become the women they once were and could be again. Written by Ann Cameron

... but couldn't.

Uploaded free via Amazon Prime I watched this film in its entirety yesterday.

Slightly reminiscent of the 'old women striking out for themselves' theme in The First Wives Club, this film sees Toyah Wilcox' character as a frustrated 50 yr old film director reunited with her two best friends (a frustrated 50 yr old Canadian criminal lawyer and a frustrated 50 yr old South African financial adviser). Everyone is frustrated on both professional and personal levels and advice seems to chop & change from striking out independently, to finding a man for some fun (although if a relationship come along then all the better as this is really the ultimate goal).

In the midst of all this, Toyah is trying to get a film funded by 'the 3Fs' (a foundation that provides funding for films run by three blokes who look like they've never ever acted before and are truly mystified how they ended up in such rubbish). Whilst impossible to do at the beginning of the film, after being reunited with her gal pals the funding suddenly falls in to place.

The acting (from everyone) is curiously wooden and there are several scenes where long delays without any dialogue being spoken take place which makes for rather awkward viewing and makes you wonder if the director or subsequent editing suite were on the sauce that day.

Very disappointed and, after watching, really not sure what the message was. Should older birds strike out independently or should we keep looking out for men to complete us? Who knows.
