A few nights before I saw the 2008 version of "The Women," I saw the 1939 version of "The Women" on Turner Classic Movies. the version was directed by George Cuckor. I like the movie but I found it a little outdated. Watching this 1939 was homework, so I can be perpare for the new version. A few days later, I saw the 2008 version of "the Women," and I found the movie much better than the 1939 version. What I love about this movie is this movie, like the 1939 version that the cast is made up of women, including the director Diane English. There are no men in this movie and I don't miss them a bit. A very strong cast led by Meg Ryan and Annette Bening, has carried this movie all the way though. When I love about the movie the most are the fashion statements, especially when it came from both Bening and Ryan. the women I most impress the most is Meg Ryan. Watching her shine is a total joy. Watching her wearing all those beautiful clothing is too a total joy. I've been in love with her for many year and with this movie, I renew my love for the actress. The rest of the cast are smart and beautiful. I had more fun sitting though this movie that either the 1939 movie, or the recent film "Sex and the City," which I do not like. Sometimes I wish I was down in Hollywood for the annual "Women in Hollywood," inwhcih women actresses were honored for their work. I believe that women in movies should be appreached more for their work. I love "The Women." It's a beautiful film to be appreached.
