CALENDAR GIRLS is the hilariously quirky comedy starring Golden Globe winners Helen Mirren* (Gosford Park, Teaching Mrs. Tingle) and Julie Walters** (Billy Elliot, Harry Potter series), and directed by Nigel Cole (Saving Grace). When twelve extraordinary members of the Women's Institute, a proper local charity, decide they need to find a new way to raise money for a very worthy cause, they turn to their annual calendar. Not wanting to divorce themselves from the traditional photographs, they give the calendar a very untraditional twist. Behind the baked goods, the apple pressing and the flower arrangements are the women - completely nude! This heartfelt story will have you laughing and crying at the same time.

Review:
A delightfully refreshing movie that demonstrates that beauty never dies, and ageing is beautiful in itself. Although there are serious undertones of growing old & cancer, the message is clear, people like sunflowers are beautiful at every stage of their life especially in the final stages.
