Brief Encounters (DVD)
With a touch of glamour, gutsy humour and an overwhelming desire to improve their lot in life, four women in early '80s Sheffield juggle the pressures of family, husbands and making ends meet, striving for happiness and fulfillment. A chance meeting between Steph (Sophie Rundle Peaky Blinders) and Nita (Angela Griffin Lewis) kick starts a transformation as they grasp the opportunity to become Ann Summers party organisers. Pauline (Penelope Wilton Downton Abbey), for whom Steph is a cleaner, agrees to host a party, inviting amongst others the bubbly and confident Dawn (Sharon Rooney, My Mad Fat Diary). Via exotic lingerie the four unlikely friends blossom, gaining confidence and independence as their ambition is ignited.
