Thoughts

This has been on the list for a while but I’d sort of forgotten about it - Amy Poehler directs a group of amazing women on a trip to Wine Country, and there’s inevitable fallout but ultimately it’s a feel good time. Whilst not quite the quiet delights of Ammonite, this is a gentle and relaxing watch, even when the women all decide to throw themselves down a hill in solidarity with each other.

Good people, good times.
