Movie Connections - Series 2 - Calendar Girls

Helen Mirren, Julie Walters, Celia Imrie, Geraldine James, Penelope Wilton, George Costigan and Philip Glenister discuss the making of their 2003 smash-hit Calendar Girls. With contributions from writers Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth, producers Suzanne Mackie and Steve Clarke-Hall, and director Nigel Cole, they explore the comedy movie that managed to tackle issues of gender, ageing, bereavement and the effects of the media in society, but that will be forever remembered as the film that provided the opportunity to see the cream of British female acting talent on screen naked together.
