British actress Pauline Collins repeats her stage success as the character Shirley Valentine, a married woman who decides in her middle years that she wants more out of life. Leaving her spouse behind, she heads to Greece, where she grows close to a low-key, local bloke (Tom Conti). Collins and director Lewis Gilbert (Educating Rita) choose to let the character, as she did in the play, speak directly to the audience at times, and the gamble works in terms of creating a gentle, intimate atmosphere. Conti is a bonus, a warm presence and funny to boot. --Tom Keogh

Well Shirley confronts her shrinking world, by accident really, and expands out to her previous dimensions. Well, mostly.
Very funny and at times poignant. The film moves from cold, dark England to sunny, warm Greece, could it be more evident that things are looking up?
