Book Club

The journalist Juan Sanguino says that there is no more honest spectator than a middle-aged woman because he does not have to prove anything to anyone. That maxim could be perfect for one of the great premieres of this weekend: ‘Book Club’. The critique has already cataloged it as a ‘chick flick The Ritual (the American definition for those movies directed to women and made with square and square to please them) taking into account its star cast (Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen ) full of illustrious women. Is that label reductionist? And if it is, what’s wrong with it being a ‘chick flick?

The story is so simple that it could be written on a napkin. A group of friends in years go to a monthly reading club and in their hands suddenly falls ’50 shades of Gray ‘. The Atomic Blonde lives of the four will change radically thanks to the sexual fantasies of Mr. Christian Gray. Along his way, old-time gallants cross paths like Don Johnson or Andy García. Many critics have spoken of ‘Book Club’ as a “harmless consumer product” and some of its criticisms show some sarcasm (the same as always) towards female films. That irony multiplies if the protagonists are middle-aged.

No one disputes, for example, Robert DeNiro laughing at his age in ‘Dirty Grandpa’. But perhaps the sexual concerns of four mature women who learn from Gray himself are causing more doubts. In the background, ‘Book Club’ is the direct heir of those female gatherings that kept ‘The Golden Girls’ in the privacy of their kitchen. Sophia, Dorothy, Blanche and Rose did not mind analyzing with humor the details of their sexuality.Silence  To the generation of women who coincided with the ‘golden girls’ it was good to see how some of their contemporaries freed themselves from prejudices and did not bite their tongues when talking about orgasms or bed bugs. Diane Keaton, one of the great claims of ‘Book Club’, has turned many of these films for mature women into a subgenre in itself. Without prejudice, without fear of losing that prestige acquired in ‘El Padrino’ or in ‘Annie Hall’. Surely, she is also a strong advocate of ‘ladies’ movies’.
