Plot: Shirley's a middle-aged Liverpool housewife, who finds herself talking to the wall while she prepares her husband's chip'n'egg, wondering what happened to her life. She compares scenes in her current life with what she used to be like and feels she's stagnated and in a rut. But when her best friend wins an all-expenses-paid vacation to Greece for two, Shirley begins to see the world, and herself, in a different light.
She was a standout in Upstairs Downstairs and continues in excellence in this movie. Tom Conte is charmingly smarmy.
Any life, anywhere can become routine to the point where it is necessary to seek out another option. Shirley Valentine takes a trip away from her family to the Greek Islands and finds that life still has a lot in store for her if she is willing to let herself enjoy it. Film transfer by this vendor was just great.
Love this movie. Has some romance, a woman willing to stick up for what she wants and the love of life. She falls in love with who she is. Love this movie
