Title: In Her Shoes
Starring: Cameron Diaz, Shirley McClaine
Its a story of two sisters, one of whom is a lawyer, career oriented type while the other (played by Cameron Diaz) is quite “vela”. Weaved around this backdrop is a story revolving around these two and their grandmom (played by Shirley McCaline) who lives in Florida in old age home. The Mom is is dead while the Dad and mother-in-law (grandma) don’t get along. The daughters eventually find their way to the grandma and then the family is brought together with a marriage of the elder daughter. The relationship between the sisters is well portrayed and both actresses do a fine job of their respective roles. Overall, its a nice film with a different theme that has been handled well. If you are looking for an action film, this is certainly not it. On the other hand if you are open to a “light” movie with ample humor and “sento”, with the pace and storyline similar to malayalam films, this one is a safe bet. By default, I think this movie is likely to appeal naturally to women more than men.
