In the role that won her Broadway's acclaimed Tony Award, Pauline Collins is the hilariously endearing Shirley Valentine, a wisecracking, completely unpredictable English housewife who proves it's never too late to recapture your dreams. Bored with her suburban life, Shirley takes a chance on adventure when a friend invites her on a vacation to Greece. Within no time she's back to her rebellious teenage roots, saying yes to a wild fling with a handsome rogue (Tom Conti) and the life she's always wanted.

The first time I watched this film it didn't do anything for me, in fact I didn't like it, I was too young to understand a mature woman going through - well - a middle life crisis really. Now I can relate to her. Hats off, she has a courage to leave her current life and try to find something better. Good film! Thumbs up!

How can you not like a woman who talks to a wall and a rock? I read the okay to my 11 year old and she got it, it's just amazing that a man could write so brilliantly from a woman's point of view.
