ITEM#: 10526885

Overcome by the drudgery of everyday domestic life, housewife Shirley Valentine (Pauline Collins) wishes for a change of pace. When her best friend Jane (Alison Steadman) invites her on a free trip to Greece, she simply cannot refuse. After a few days of lounging on golden Mediterranean beaches, Shirley is back to her sprightly old self, and when she meets Costas Caldes (Tom Conti), the two engage in an unforgettable love affair which will change their lives forever. Director Lewis Gilbert does an amazing job converting this one woman stage play into an exotic and heartfelt film. As always, Gilbert impresses with his unique fly-by cinematography, beautifully displaying the lidos and sandbars of the Aegean Sea. Best of all, however, are the effortless performances from Pauline Collins and Tom Conti, as their characters fall in love and go from frustrated adults to giddy teenagers, proving it?s never too begin life again.

  • For Women
    Verified Purchase

    I love this move. It is one of my favorites because it honors the importance of women being their own persons and taking care of themselves. I grew up in a generation where women were to be the caretakers of men and their families with little time for themselves. There is nothing wrong with that, if it is what YOU really choose and not something you have been unknowlingly forced into by your upbringing, religion or old fashioned guilt. Many of us felt unappreciated and struggled to find ourselves. Many women are still struggling today. This movie is a breath of fresh air and is light hearted and fun. It has a small amount of nudity in it but I do not think it is inappropriate and it is not what I consider offensive. It is a wonderful movie to watch with your girlfriends.Here's to the Shirley Valentine in many of us married women.
