Book Club is a racy comedy about four best friends (Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton, Mary Steenburgen) whose lives change after they read Fifty Shades of Grey together. The book causes each woman to reexamine the state of her own love life. The film is designed for adults, especially older adults, and teens may be disinterested; the movie does, however, carry strong messages about female friendships and healthy relationships.
