  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Women Talking Dirty is a touching comic story of two women who truly test the meaning of the phrase 'best friends'. Coming from disparate worlds, these two friends bond through a chance meeting followed by a series of unpredictable events. Ellen is a shy, but successful cartoonist who falls hopelessly in love and marries a seductively compulsive gambler, Daniel. The feisty Cora, falls head over heels for a Frenchman named Claude and winds up becoming a single mother trying to make ends meet. Together, Ellen and Cora help each other with all life throws at them - lovers, divorce, children, debts and too much vodka.





A colourful and quirky group of characters surround them. Stanley, Ellen's boss, coaches her on relationships while secretly holding a candle for Cora. Ronald and George seem to have unlocked the secret to a lasting relationship, while the enigmatic Emily Boyle understands all. With cosmopolitan Edinburgh for a backdrop, Women Talking Dirty tells the story of Cora and Ellen and the unravelling of a dark secret they unknowingly share.
