Working Girl

Captivating workplace comedy follows an ambitious secretary as she attempts to climb the corporate ladder.  Plot unfolds like the somewhat timeworn Cinderella story archetype, but brilliantly captures the zeitgeist by updating it to corporate America of the 1980s.  Melanie Griffith is an absolute delight in an effervescent performance as Tess McGill, a secretary with “a mind for business and a bod for sin”.  She’s supported by an talented cast that includes Harrison Ford and Sigourney Weaver in equally memorable parts.  Classic film director, Mike Nichols, is in top form, working from a witty script by screenwriter Kevin Wade..  Sometimes, success is the best revenge.
