Even though the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy has come and pass, we still can’t escape it. The book has managed to creep up on us when we least expected. Bill Holderman’s directorial debut managed to remind us of the erotic guilty pleasure in the latest rom-com Book Club. Written by Holderman along with Erin Simms gives us a movie you have seen many times before with a great and well-known cast telling the story that even in the world of filmmaking and acting, age is only a number.
Diane Keaton (Something’s Gotta Give), along with wonderful actresses Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie), Candice Bergen (TV’s Murphy Brown, Miss Congeniality), and Mary Steenburgen (TV’s Last Man on Earth) are four best friends who meet for a monthly book club and have their lives changed once the book of the month is “50 Shades of Grey”.
