Back on the big screen, Girlfriends is an often overlooked classic. A richly relatable take on female-friendship, that went on to influence celebrated stories of women-in-the-city, including Frances Ha and Girls.

Susan is an artist, struggling to make ends-meet but scraping together cash as a bar mitzvah photographer in Manhattan. She gets by, living with her best-friend and roommate Anne, but her bubble bursts when Anne tells her she is getting married and moving out.

Warm, funny and heartfelt, Girlfriends is a quietly radical film that confidently takes on the complexities of adulthood, friendship and feminism.
