This review is from: Calendar Girls [DVD]  (DVD)
It took me a long time to watch this movie.
I knew about the story but didn't really fancy it, and I am so glad I overcame my prejudices.
The movie is a touching story of a woman's attempt's (Julie Walters) with the help of her friend (Helen Mirren) to overcome the loss of her husband (Brilliantly acted by John Alderton) to cancer and raise some cash for the local hospital. This they did by posing nude for the local Women's Institue calendar...the rest as they say is history.
The movie is funny, touching, inspirational and pure dead brilliant.
If you haven't seen it - rent it without delay.
So far the calendar and offshoots have raised £1,500, 000 and a new cancer wing for the hospital...
