In Her Shoes
Don’t let the shoe obsession fool you—this is not Sex and the City, the movie or the book! Instead this ’05 flick and the book it was based on by Jennifer Weiner give a surprisingly sweet and refreshingly realistic look at sisterhood, definitely of a higher quality than unfortunately most chick flicks! Cameron Diaz gives one of her best performances as party girl sister Maggie, while Toni Collette is, as usual, terrific as Maggie’s counterpart, the straight-laced, shoe-loving big sis Rose. Add in the always welcome Shirley MacLaine and you have one darn good fiction-to-film adaptation!
