In Her Shoes (2005)

In Her Shoes (2005)

The Siblings: Rose (Toni Collette) and Maggie (Cameron Diaz)

What puts them at odds? Rose, the older sister, is strait-laced and a little resentful of her free-wheeling younger sister Maggie even before the latter steals her precious shoes and sleeps with her boyfriend. Then she gets really angry.

An unusual film that treats sisterhood as seriously as brotherhood, In Her Shoes is not another chick-flick. Two women raised by a bipolar mother, one grows up repressed and sufficiently stressed to italicise an entire encyclopaedia, while the other can’t commit to a job, a relationship or even to overcoming her dyslexia enough to learn to read. But while it takes a total break in their relationship to inspire each to sort out her life, it also becomes clear that neither feels complete without the other. While there are great heels and a couple of love interests in the mix, this is about as far from Sex & The City as you can get. It’s more like Jerry Maguire – if the little kid was Shirley MacLaine and the goldfish was a pair of designer shoes.

Which sibling is your favourite?
