Two friends, one journey, no limits July 12 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Some critics are calling this engaging film a modern day `Thelma and Louise, but with a happy ending'. Yes, is it is a story about tow disconsolate women who decide to take their lives in their own hands and set out on a road trip to prove they can indeed survive. As written by Joelle Touma and Marion Doussot and directed by Rachid Bouchareb (highly regarded for his touching films `Days of Glory' and `London River') JUST LIKE A WOMAN takes on a pair of women who have issues with men and allows us to see the building of a friendship of meaning and one that overcomes sour consequences with gentle grace.

Mona (Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani), 26, is an immigrant from Egypt who was brought to America by her now mother in law (Chafia Boudraa) to run her in-laws' mini market in Chicago and to marry her arranged husband is Mourad (Roschdy Zem), a kind and gentle man who can't stand up to his authoritarian mother. Mona is harassed by her mother-in-law because after five years of marriage, she hasn't be able to get pregnant, something that's considered a shame and a taboo in her culture. Marilyn (Sienna Miller), 29, is a receptionist at a computer repair company. Her marriage with Harvey (Jesse Bob Harper) is on the ropes. The only thing in her life that makes her happy is her belly dancing class as taught by her close friend Peter (Michael Ehlers) who sees Marilyn's gifts and encourages her to try out for a belly dancing group in Santa Fe, NM. Marilyn shops at Mona's mini-market and they have become friends who both incidentally love belly dancing. Two tragedies occur: Mona accidentally gives her mother-in-law a lethal dose of digoxin and fearing she will be arrested she flees; Marilyn loses her job because of the recession and when she arrives home she discovers Harvey cheating on her. With nothing left to lose, Marilyn decides to go to Santa Fe after all. Mona and Marilyn run into each other on a rest area on the side of a highway. They decide to continue the trip together. They cross the USA, pitching their tent in trailer parks and in the middle of the desert. They earn some cash belly dancing together in restaurants and bars. Back in Chicago, Mona is considered a fugitive; she's wanted for the murder of her mother-in-law. Harvey asks the police to look for Marilyn who disappeared without leaving a trace. How the plans of the two women who have become fast friends are resolved provides the somewhat surprise ending.

Miller and Farahani create a magnetic chemistry on screen and from the get-go they have us routing for their flight to freedom. The various characters they meet on this road trip are well acted and the general feeling at the end of the film is one of warm applause. Grady Harp, July 13

True friendship movie Aug. 23 2013
By Christi Crochet - Published on Amazon.com

This movie showcased what it means to be a true friend. It shows the struggles of two women and how leaning on each other helped them out. It was a refreshingly good movie.
Original and touching, with some sizzle-pop, pain, and cross-cultural bonding. Jan. 25 2014
By GskFn - Published on Amazon.com
This is an entertaining film that also pokes and prods sociologically. I won't spoil the story with specifics about the central relationship that develops, and what people around them do. I will say this: if you care about people, relationships, and mixing of cultural norms, there is something here. Unfortunate pain, rights and wrongs, and willful gain. Add in some belly dancing, sparks of sex appeal, and personalities each edgy but sensitive in their different ways. Enjoy.

I give it only four stars instead of five because the plot left a little to be desired. Yes, it was intriguing and entertaining, and it did the job of providing a context for the people and relationships. But it was strewn with farfetched situations for which explanations weren't given. Get past that, and you're good.

Was a new age movie similar to Thelma & Louise. The subject of belly dancing was a added surprise. Overall a very enjoyable movie.

This is a great film. Flowing, sexy, fun. These actresses did an incredible job in their roles. I rarely purchase movies and this one I did.
