As expected from co-writer Nora Ephron, Love, Loss, and What I Wore will make you laugh just as hard as you want to cry.
Gingy (Carol Kane) frames the story that follows the lives of many different women as they go through their lives and remember the clothes associated with those important moments.
Everyone in the cast had been part of the rotating cast in the original Off-Broadway run. They know the roles and the perfect spots to add their own flair, but still get enjoyment out of watching the others embody their characters.
Rosie O’Donnell has the most memorable story talking about her purse and the endless pits that women’s purses become. She whips through pages of monologue and never misses a beat.
Final say: Watching them break character is one of the best parts. ★★★★★
