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.

  • A film that, despite its slight intentions, offers several lovely moments. show more

  • 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

  • Career Girls reaches a little too often and unconvincingly for convenience... But Leigh remains one of the few film makers today to make movies that are solely character-driven, in which personal insight is its own reward. [8 Aug 1997, p.46] show more
