Shirley Bradshaw is a bored, middle-aged housewife, trapped in a stale, loveless marriage. Her children are all grown up and she frequently talks to the wall in her kitchen while preparing her husband’s regular evening meal of chips and egg.
Shirley feels stuck in a rut and finds solace in her daily glass of wine as she muses over the lack of excitement in her life.
When suddenly her best friend asks her to go to Greece with her for 2 weeks, Shirley jumps at the chance with a mix of exhilaration and jittery nerves. Finally, she is living the life she has dreamed of and rediscovers the self-confidence she has lost and the Shirley Valentine of her youth.
This wonderful comedy is sure to lift your hearts and brighten your day.
