Mike Nichols United States, 1988

msmichel's rating of the film Working Girl

Time capsule cinema at this point and hard to fathom it was a best picture Oscar nominee. Melanie Griffith is still quite wonderful as Tess with able support from Weaver and even Ford (playing against type). Where it lacks is in the clichéd scriptwriting and 'feel-good' dynamic. Mind you I do remember this being completely charming in '88.
