Shirley Valentine/The First Wives Club/Terms of Endearment, DVD


Drama triple. In 'Shirley Valentine' (1989), bored housewife Shirley Valentine (Pauline Collins) jumps at the chance to do something different when her friend wins a holiday to a Greek Island and invites her along.

Whilst there she meets a local man (Tom Conti) and has a fling with him.

In 'The First Wives Club' (1996), four friends - Annie, Brenda, Cynthia and Elise - vow that they will never lose touch when they graduate from college in 1969.

Nearly three decades later, Cynthia commits suicide after her husband abandons her.

Meeting at her funeral, the three remaining friends each confess that their respective spouses have been unfaithful, and set out to wreak revenge.

Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton are the trio of women out to take their men for all they can get.

James L Brooks' multi-Oscar-winning film 'Terms of Endearment' (1983) tracks the volatile relationship between overbearing mother Aurora (Shirley Maclaine) and Emma (Debra Winger), the daughter who cannot wait to escape her clutches.

The story covers 30 years, from Emma's late teens to her marriage to Flap Horton (Jeff Daniels), Aurora's difficulty in facing her new role as a grandmother, and her relationship with Garrett Breedlove (Jack Nicholson), an ex-astronaut who is constantly searching for excitement in his life.

The story then moves toward its tear-jerking conclusion as Emma discovers that she has cancer.
