Nearly thirteen years in the making, Diane English's update of George Cukor's ionic 1939 film The Women is finally coming to the big screen. Adapted from Clare Boothe Luce's legendary play, the story is set in New York City's modern world of fashion and publishing and revolves around Mary Haines (Meg Ryan), a clothing designer who seems to have it all. But when Mary's husband enters into an affair with Crystal Allen (Eva Mendes), a sultry 'spritzer girl' lurking behind the Saks Fifth Avenue perfume counter, all hell breaks loose. Mary relationships are tested to the breaking point, and her tight-knit circle of friends all start to question their own friendships and romantic relationships as well. We recently caught up with all The Women behind this wonderfully funny remake.
