Susan (Melanie Mayron) is a photographer stuck in odd jobs, just waiting for her big break. The only thing she can truly depend on is Ann (Anita Skinner), her longtime roommate and confidant. But when Ann decides she’s getting married and moves out, Susan’s world is turned upside down, as she quickly realizes how dependent she has become on her best girlfriend and the comfortable bond they share. Forced to make due in the lonely world, Susan soon realizes what a rare occurrence finding true human connection can be. Reminiscent of such ‘70s, slice-of-life classics as The Goodbye Girl and An Unmarried Woman, Girlfriends is a sparkling, underseen gem just waiting to be rediscovered, here presented in glorious 35mm.
Dir. Claudia Weill / 1978 / US / 86 min
