Calendar Girls ()

directed by
featuring Helen Mirren, Julie Walters, John Alderton, Linda Bassett, Annette Crosbie

Nigel Cole directs the feel-good comedy Calendar Girls, based on the true story of a group of working-class British housewives who became overnight celebrities by posing for a nude calendar in order to raise more than 500-thousand pounds for a new leukemia unit. The film follows the adventures of best friends Chris Harper (Helen Mirren) and Annie Clarke (Julie Walters), both members of the charitable Rylstone Women's Institute in North Yorkshire. After Annie's husband John (John Alderton) succumbs to leukemia, the friends are motivated to take some action. They convince the group to craft a tastefully nude calendar featuring the usual ladies' activities of gardening and baking, as photographed by the young amateur Lawrence (Philip Glenister). Despite the disapproval of the Institute's leader Marie (Geraldine James), the calendar quickly becomes a best-seller and leads the group to Hollywood. Ciaran Hinds appears as Chris' husband Rod Harper. Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi Hide synopsis

never too old

The writing, acting, and cinematography are amazing. This true story is as touching as it is funny. I know for a fact that this movie has inspired such a calendar in a senior center in Maryland (hide behind the plant please).
