New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 52 Films By Women: Girlfriends (1978)

By Andrea Thompson

For our latest entry in films that were ahead of their time, we have Claudia Weill’s 1978 gem “Girlfriends.” In a sense at least. Any film that takes place in New York City during this particular era (or really any time before the early 2000s) is going to be a time capsule, and “Girlfriends” is very much that, with the quickest communication happening not just through landline (!) phones, but without any kind of voicemail or answering machine.
