[SUPER=07-Anna's Grade "B+";]

((Calendar Girls Touchstone
"Calendar Girls" is a delightfully quirky British movie where not a great deal happens, but the characters and setting-a small village in Yorkshire, England- are so charming, it doesn't matter.
The story is based on a real event, which makes it all the more intriguing. Helen Mirren and Julie Walters are Chris and Annie, very dear friends, who are members of the Women's Institute, a women's group with the alleged purpose of doing good, empowering women, and strengthening friendships. The meetings, however, usually involve boring talks about tea towels or broccoli or someone's summer vacation. When Annie's husband, John, becomes ill, Chris decides the annual WI calendar, generally containing photos of locally grown flowers, churches or other pastoral scenes, should be sold as a fund raiser to honor John; and after seeing a nudie calendar in a local repair shop, she decides the Women's Institute should do a calendar with the Women's Institute members- middle aged matrons all- nude, but artistically photographed.
Her idea is met with enthusiasm by some; by censorious criticism by others. A delightful scene involves the chosen photographer, Lawrence, trying to cope. The calendar becomes an unlikely sensation and the fallout, including a trip to Hollywood to be on the Jay Leno show, strains Chris and Annie's friendship to the breaking point.
Mirren and Walters lead a lovely and lively cast of women, whose characters are all affected, most in a positive way, by their experience. These are women it would be fun to know!
"Calendar Girls" is a sweet, thoughtful little movie. The story is thin, and the Hollywood bit doesn't really work, but the English village scenes are great fun. Rated PG 13. Grade B+. ))
