| Shared lives torn apart
Girlfriends, a bittersweet tale of two female roommates split apart when one gets married. The other, our protagonist in this film is all at sea. The two women out of necessity and believe me this is true in New York City came together to share rent. But living together as you do and hitting it off you get to share lives.

Melanie Mayron and Anita Skinner are the roommates. Out of the blue one fine day Skinner announces she's marrying Bob Balaban. At that point Mayron is just lost. Mind you there's nothing sexual going on with them, but Skinner can't adjust to now being alone. Even a relationship with Christopher Guest just ain't the same thing as sisterhood.

Eli Wallach the old family rabbi and a most modern thinker keeps Mayron employed in her profession as a photographer using her as a wedding photographer. Mayron is pursuing this as an art form as well and here she has the encouragement of museum exhibitor Viveca Lindfors. Will success in her profession fill a lot of the emptiness?

Girlfriends is a nice character study from the women's point of view. Not much of a plot but seem character portrayals.
