This is the true story of a group of daring, middle-aged ladies who decided to pose for a semi-nude calendar, in order to raise money to buy a decent sofa for the local hospital's waiting room. Their highly original idea and their commitment to bringing the project the life, provide the viewer with one of the most entertaining comedy/dramas to be filmed during the last 15 years.
Golden Globe nominated Helen Mirren and equally talented (but unfortunately, ignored) Julie Walters portray real-life fundraisers Tricia Stewart and Angie Baker, with a stellar cast, including Penelope Wilton, Linda Basset, Annette Crosbie , Celia Imrie and Geraldine James as their fellow WI ladies. The somewhat bemused husbands & sons include Ciaran Hinds, George Costigan, teen-agers John-Paul MacLeod, Marc Pickering, and Philip Glenister portraying real-life calendar photographer Terry Logan.
The beautiful natural scenery and quaint towns of Yorkshire provide a marvellous backdrop to the story, and the dialogue is crisp and humourous.
This is a worthwhile addition to any DVD collection.
