Girlfriends

Claudia Weill’s groundbreaking indie follows an aspiring New York photographer (Melanie Mayron, a revelation) when her life takes a sudden turn – her roommate and best friend decides to marry and move out. Now she’ll have to navigate a new world while trying to navigate the complex world of personal relationships. Girlfriends is a warm, wise, and very funny treatise on friendship, featuring superb supporting performances from Anita Skinner, Eli Wallach, Christopher Guest, and Bob Balaban.

“Sensitive, engrossing, and touching. And intelligent off-beat movie about real people who come alive.” – Jeffrey Lyons, CBS Radio

“A movie so full of life and love and feeling, you’re bound to take some of it home with you.” – David Sheehan, CBS TV

It’s My Turn

She’s seemingly got it all: success, security, and an active sex life. But when math professor Kate Gunzinger (Jill Clayburgh) falls for her new stepbrother, a retired New York Yankee (Michael Douglas), at her dad’s wedding, her life will be turned upside down. Now she’ll have to navigate a complicated family dynamic, not to mention her boyfriend (Charles Grodin) and her new beau’s wife, while also finding herself a crossroads in her professional life. Claudia Weill directs from a sharp script by Eleanor Bergstein (Dirty Dancing).
