A nice one for the girls.

Just a quick post – as I’m watching the movie In Her Shoes on the telly.
What a delight. I’ve been enjoying it so much.
It has it’s touches of ‘Hollywood’ – yes – but the main protagonists are all women and we see all their flaws – their different shapes and looks – as well as their gifts.
It looks at the sisterhood…the good, the bad and the ugly.
And there’s beauty in their flaws.
Toni Collette is always her amazing self – a.mazing – and Cameron Diaz is fantastic; she was great in this role. There’s also Shirley Maclaine…and last, but not least, a divine collection of gorgeous shoes!
It’s like you can kind of relate to every female character, in some tiny way (or in many) – whether as a part of you or as a part of the women around you.
Complex women. Like us.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this movie with you – one that (I thought) portrayed a more truthful representation of a cross-section of women. This seems to be a lacking element of the movies nowadays.
Watch it one day – and please be sure to visit me again and tell me what you thought of it.
We need more movies like this.
