Film Review

Antonia and Jane
Directed by Beeban Kidron
Paramount Home Entertainment 11/91 DVD/VHS Feature Film
R - language, sensuality

Antonia & Jane is a British comedy about two mismatched woman friends who have had a love/hate relationship with each other since childhood. Plain Jane (Imelda Staunton) changes interests and boyfriends according to her moods. She envies beautiful Antonia (Saskia Reeves) whose seemingly perfect life hides a mess of insecurities. Both women have trouble with men and sex; they also are unaware that they're seeing the same therapist. Director Beeban Kidron pulls of some nifty cinematic vignettes and keeps us guessing as to why these two women so desperately need each other when they don't even like each other.
