Book Club

FOUR LIFELONG FRIENDS tackle E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey in their book club. As they work out the perils of life and love in their mid-60s, they aspire to make the best chapter of their lives. Directed by Bill Holderman, it stars Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson, and Alicia Silverstone. “Great as it is to see Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Mary Steenburgen, and Candice Bergen on the big scree, too bad they’re floundering about in this undercooked, silly and often downright inexplicable romantic comedy that plays like lesser Nora Ephron,” writes Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times
