Finding out that their husbands are not just work partners, but have also been romantically involved for the last twenty years, two women with an already strained relationship try to cope with the circumstances together.


Review :

Who doesn’t love Jane Fonda and Lilly Tomlin’s duo? Their complicity isn’t new (go watch 9 to 5 from 1980!) but it is still just as beautiful. The strong women they play bring a refreshing perspective on ageing, celibacy, and, most specifically, on friendship. The couple Sol and Robert introduces many questions about the interiorized homophobia that they can finally free themselves from.

The show talks about privileged families that live on the seaside. Nothing too heavy, everything is tackled with finesse. I recommend! The characters find themselves in many funny situations.
