This engaging, modern romantic comedy marks the directorial début for its acclaimed screenwriting duo. Three young women discover that their separated mum (Sarda) has a new lover. But their delight at the news is quickly dissipated by the arrival of Sofía’s beloved – a younger, Czech woman. Initially, the siblings attempt to behave like the progressive women they believe themselves to be. But the façade soon begins to crumble, especially for the neurotic, relationship-jinxed Elvira (Watling) and the girls decide to take drastic action. A witty take on modern attitudes and ‘family values’, based upon an excellent script and sparkling performances from all.
