A striking film for its time, The Women features an exclusively female ensamble cast, headlined by Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell. Boasting snappy, clever dialogue and sharp performances, the film presents an enjoyable mix of melodrama and comedy, following the entanglements of a group of women dealing with the men they love... and despise.
'Exhilaratingly funny' - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
'Directing ensemble scenes with upwards of half-a-dozen divas is no easy feat - leave it to Cukor to corral this kind of star power into a two hour-plus film that never takes a break to powder its nose- - Caroline Golum, Little White Lies
