Calendar Girls

Calendar Girls is a 2003 movie from the U.K. based on the real-life story of the middle-aged members of a Yorkshire Women's Institute who published a calendar featuring nude pictures of themselves to benefit a local hospital. Helen Mirren and Julie Walters are both funny and touching as the main instigators of the plan, but all of the ladies are very cute and Calendar Girls does an even better job than Something's Gotta Give of celebrating the beauty of the middle-aged woman. Although Calendar Girls falters when it ventures into heavy drama, it's successful as a pleasant comedy and a showcase for a number of terrific actresses. I gave it eight out of ten.
