This review is from: Calendar Girls [DVD]  (DVD)
Based on the book of the same name Calendar Girls is a truly marvellous film with the support of a great cast.
This is the somewhat sad story of one of the husbands of the Calendar Girls who gets cancer and when treatment fails, dies. A group of the WI women get together and produce an alternative WI Calendar and then comes the story of the calendar's success and the huge amount of money raised for cancer research.
It is difficult to say why this film is so good. Safe to say it deals with a very difficult subject with consideration but also shows that there are times of laughter as well as great sadness.
A film that I could watch again and again.
