Storyline

Emmy winner, Linda Yellen, brings together an all-star ensemble cast for Chantilly Lace which received worldwide acclaim for its intimate exploration of the secret lives of women. Seven women friends - including a nun in crisis, an angry divorcee, and an unfiltered, sexually-charged artist - gather in the Colorado Rockies at the upscale vacation home of Val (Eikenberry), to celebrate the surprise 40th birthday of a popular film critic, Natalie (Williams). When Val's offbeat younger sister (Sheedy) arrives with a newcomer, a maverick photojournalist played by Emmy winner, Martha Plimpton, tensions rise as secrets of love, loss and betrayal are revealed. Years of friendship are tested in a pivotal year as the women assemble again for the engagement of another and once more to bereave the shocking death of a third. What began as an experiment at Sundance Film Institute, Chantilly Lace, explores the landscape of contemporary women's issues with humor and honesty 'unlike any American film.'

Trivia

Most of the dialogue was improvised by the cast, who were given extraordinary creative control over their own characters, even drawing straws to determine which of their characters would die in the story. Director Linda Yellen said, "I never believed this would be accepted commercially." Co-star Jill Eikenberry said filming was like a "week-long therapy session." See more »

Moving, entertaining, powerful
13 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie was one of the most powerful films that I have seen in years. It teaches us all how to look at our relationships and friendships. I hope that when I revisit my youth, I have a group of friends as loyal and fun as this group of exceptional women. This movie made me call a friend I haven't talked to in years and rekindle the relationship. Rent this movie, pop some popcorn and watch it with your nearest and dearest!
