Friends with Money - 5

A story about four friends by Nicole Holofcener (Gilmore Girls and Sex and the City). Four women who have been friends for most of their lives come to be in their 30's and start to contemplate their futures and lives. Three of the women are married and have different types of relationships. The forth is still single. This film is a character study rather than a narrative. Life happens and each character reacts differently. The film ends with the character realizing that they are flawed and being happy and content anyway. Life could always be worse, at least they have friendship. Their friendship is what centers their lives and all the hurt and stuff they encounter. This film has an great cast including: Catherine Keener, Frances McDormand, Joan Cusack, and Jennifer Aniston. This probably should be a show rather than a film, it seems like somewhat of a good response to Desperate Housewives.
