A STORY OF LOVE.... AND MONEY.... AND FRIENDSHIPS.... FRIENDS WITH MONEY
Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Joan Cusack, Catherine Keener, Frances McDormandDirector:Rated: M
Running Time: 83 mins
Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) is a single, cash-strapped woman working as a maid in Los Angeles in order to make ends meet. She is surrounded by a support network of well-off friends including Franny (Joan Cusack), Christine (Catherine Keener), Jane (Frances McDormand), and each of their respective husbands. While the disparity in financial situations between Olivia and her friends creates some friction, each woman is facing her own individual struggles.
Olivia can't seem to find love or money and resorts to questionable tactics to satisfy both. Franny's inherited money sometimes causes tension between her and her husband who likes to spend it. Christine's marriage is falling apart due to the inability of her and her husband to communicate effectively. Finally, Jane's attitude is becoming increasingly caustic, possibly due to her husband's potential homosexuality. Together, these women attend charity benefits, have lunch, lean on each other, and wade their way through this slice of life.
