Interviews indicated the movie has hit home with this audience because it affirms the sexual reality of women of a certain age, that even as they pass the prime of their desirability to men, libidos smolder. More than a few said they came seeking a hot night out. So many movies are youth-oriented.
As soon as we were away from the hotel we started kissing, then had sex in the back of her car. Afterwards she told me to go round to her house the next week, when her husband was at work and we would have more time.

I kept it to the last few years and tried to pick stories that had a woman over 40 as the evident protagonist.
Rebecca insists her birthday is no big deal. These middle-aged women self-medicate with wine and prescription pills, and pass merciless judgment on one another while privately wallowing in disappointment and regret. Let the record show that there is no Happy. Similarly aggravating is their disdain for the younger generation, whom they loudly dismiss as entitled and over-sensitive.
