Plot Summary
Annie (Lynda Steadman) is meeting up with her old college pal Hannah (Katrin Cartlidge) for the first time since they graduated six years ago. They bonded in school, despite their differences; now they've become more mature and put their old problems behind them -- or so they think. Once they reunite, Annie realizes that she hasn't fully overcome her past anxieties, while Hannah learns that she is still too insensitive to the feelings of others. Both women hope to some make changes.

    Despite an 87-minute running time, the movie takes a long time to get rolling, and even fellow Leigh enthusiasts may wonder whether the payoff is worth it, though reaction could well divide along sexual lines. [7 Aug 1997, p.3D] show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Career Girls doesn't have the sweep of Secrets & Lies, nor the venom of Naked (which also featured the riveting Cartlidge). But in the small world it keenly describes, the film packs an emotional punch - silly voices and all. show more
