Good Housekeeping (UK) - - July’s Good Life -


We would have loved to have been on the set of this film star­ring Hol­ly­wood le­gends Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Ber­gen and Mary Steen­bur­gen. The four play friends who en­liven a book club by read­ing Fifty Shades Of Grey. What they re­ally want to do is spice up their own sex lives, which they man­age with the help of some dash­ing male backup (Andy Gar­cia and Don John­son). It’s not re­ally about Fifty Shades, but about fe­male friend­ship. 1 June


What’s bet­ter than a breezy, sum­mery rom­com? One that has a mis­chievous dog at the cen­tre of the ac­tion, that’s what. The film’s star, Beattie Ed­mond­son, is the daugh­ter of Jennifer Saun­ders, who also ap­pears in the film. But it’s Pa­trick the pug who steals the show – he’s a ‘small beast’ be­queathed to teacher Sarah (Ed­mond­son) by her grand­mother, and so be­gins a pooch-based ad­ven­ture. 29 June


Based on the novel by Pene­lope Fitzger­ald, the tale fol­lows widow Florence (Emily Mor­timer) as she opens a book­shop in a small town. Lo­cal res­i­dents try to oust her, but she starts a friend­ship with Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy), who be­comes her con­fi­dant. 29 June
