Crush

A FILM BY John McKay

...Crush is a clever and captivating romantic comedy with a welcome pinch of tartness.
-Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal
Mixes slapstick, poignancy, tragedy and sophisticated wit.
-Loren King, Chicago Tribune
The chemistry between the three actresses is why I'm recommending this film.
-Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper

Synopsis

Welcome to the deliciously sinful world of the ladies of Crush. Kate (Andie MacDowell), Janine (Imelda Staunton) and Molly (Anna Chancellor) happily engage in weekly rituals of gin guzzling, cigarette puffing, chocolate chugging and men trashing. They are practically successful women who share one common lament - their love lives - or lack thereof. But when Kate embarks on a passionate and capricious romance with a former student (Kenny Doughty), the strength of this female bond is interrupted, resulting in a devious conterattack by the other two members of the "Sad F**kers's Club." Writer-director John McKay's first feature-length film is a sharply observed ode to the triumphs and tragedies of women and the men that accessorize them. Witty, wry, provocative and touching, with breathtaking cinematography of an enchanting England, Crush is a captivating story revolving around the mysteries of love and the power of female friendship.
