Shirley Valentine (1989)
Shirley is a middle-aged Liverpool housewife, who finds herself talking to the wall while she prepares her husband's chip'n'egg, wondering what happened to her life. She compares scenes in her current life with what she used to be like and feels she's stagnated and in a rut. But when her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid vacation to Greece for two, Shirley begins to see the world, and herself, in a different light.
Viewer Quote: "The scenery is as wonderful as the story. This is a sweet yet hilariously funny film about a housewife from the north of England, who takes a trip to Greece (beautiful sunsets over a blue sea) and finds that there is more to life than the kitchen sink. She says yes to the romance with a handsome Costas Caldes (Tom Conti) who likes her in spite her extra weight, saggy boobs and the stretch marks. She began to like herself, too... Shirley Valentine is a gem of a film and a must see, so treat yourself."
This is a memorable and delightful film!
