It is a warm, sympathetic study -- and often a very charming one.

The design is simple but the resulting pattern is complex and appealing. Girlfriends, the new film by Claudia Weill, is composed of so many small, deft scenes that one is reminded of a handsome piece of embroidery, lovingly made whole.

There is an almost overpowering sense of relief when watching Girlfriends that all stories matter: that the personal politics and insecurities so few of us live without are ... worthy of being projected on cinema screens.
