It’s great to see that Jada Pinkett-Smiths will be co-starring in the upcoming film The Women also starring Meg Ryan, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing, Annette Bening, with appearances by Candice Bergen, Bette Midler, Carrie Fisher, and Lynn Whitfield. It’s seems like quite a while since we’ve seen Jada in any movie.
The Women, directed by Diane English, tells the story of Mary Haines (Meg Ryan), a clothing designer who seems to have it all – a beautiful country home, a rich financier husband, an adorable 11-year-old daughter and a part-time career creating designs for her father’s venerable clothing company. Her best friend, Sylvie Fowler (Annette Bening), leads another enviable life – a happily single editor of a prominent fashion magazine, a possessor of a huge closet of designer clothes and a revered arbiter of taste and style poised on New York’s cutting edge. But when Mary’s husband enters into an affair with Crystal Allen (Eva Mendes), a sultry ‘spritzer girl’ lurking behind the Saks Fifth Avenue perfume counter, all hell breaks loose. Mary and Sylvie’s relationship is tested to the breaking point while their tight-knit circle of friends, including mega-mommy Edie Cohen (Debra Messing) and author Alex Fisher (Jada Pinkett-Smith), all start to question their own friendships and romantic relationships as well.
It looks funny, dramatic, romantic, and full of excitement! I can’t wait to see it.
