(From the 5-18-18 edition of The Daily Journal)

What happens when four women, bound together by life-long experiences, friends for decades, decide to tackle “Fifty Shades of Grey” in their thematic book club?  Sheer fun! “Book Club” was co-written by Erin Simms and Bill Holderman and directed by Holderman who both stood their ground in creating a romantic comedy with four talented and older women.  Initially, turned away from production companies who wanted younger actresses, the pair stuck to their guns to let Hollywood know there is a need for female-centric stories geared for the over 50 age group.  Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton, and Mary Steenburgen, all women well-past their fifties, star in this film proving that while we all may get older, our hearts never do.
