Friends. Rivals. Sisters.
'In Her Shoes' is the alternately hilarious and heart-rending story of two sisters with nothing in common but size 8 ½ feet. Maggie and Rose Feller are both best friends and polar opposites when it comes to values, goals and personal style.
Maggie (Cameron Diaz) is a party girl, Rose (Toni Collette) is a Princeton educated attorney at a top law firm in Philadelphia and after a calamitous falling out, the two sisters travel a bumpy road toward true appreciation for one another - aided along the way by the discovery of the maternal grandmother (Shirley MacLaine) they thought was dead. Through their re-connection with their grandmother, Ella, Maggie and Rose learn how to make peace with themselves and with each other.
What do you have in common with your sister or other siblings? Are you chalk and cheese?This light-hearted but insightful look at family, the dynamics and bonds that keep it together and the molehills that can tear it apart is realistic and is likely to strike a cord. Toni Collette, Cameron Diaz, Shirley MacLaine all deliver touching performances.
