If You Love Sex and the City, You’ll Want to See Book Club ASAP

Four woman, sitting around, discussing their sex lives and relationships over drinks. Sound familiar? Of course it does. That’s the premise of one of the most beloved TV series of all time, Sex and the City. But it’s also the plot of Book Club, which hits theaters today and is guaranteed to fill the Carrie Bradshaw-and-company-shaped hole in your heart, at least for two hours. One difference you'll realize outright: SATC followed a group of thirty-something women as they navigated New York City’s dating scene, whereas Book Club looks at the love lives of Los Angeles-based women in their sixties. Other than the characters’ ages and locations, though, the projects are strikingly similar at their core. For starters, it’s easy to slot each of Book Club’s leading ladies—Diane (Diane Keaton), Vivian (Jane Fonda), Sharon (Candice Bergen), and Carol (Mary Steenburgen)—into one of Sex and the City’s now-iconic personality types. Only a few minutes in, you can identify the Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte of the group (more on who’s who, below). Then there’s the sex factor. While reading Fifty Shades of Grey in their four-decades-strong book club, the characters find themselves inspired to spice up their own love lives. It prompts candid—and downright hilarious—discussions about what it’s really like for the 60-plus set to find a new partner in the age of dating apps. Swap out their bottle of wine with four cosmopolitans and you’ve got yourself a SATC flash-forward.

Candice Bergen—who unforgettably starred as Carrie Bradshaw’s Vogue editor, Enid—once again finds herself opposite actor Wallace Shawn onscreen. (You might best remember Shawn for portraying the “hobbit” Carrie tried to fix up with Enid in the show’s final season, much to her horror.) While things ultimately seemed to work out for the pair on TV, their Bumble date doesn’t go quite as well in the movie. Read on for a side-by-side comparison of the characters and more reasons to go see Book Club in this post-SATC world.

Meryl Streep Pays Tribute to Diane Keaton at the AFI Lifetime Achievement Gala

Eight years after Diane Keaton memorably called Meryl Streep "a genius" while paying tribute to her iconic career, the Devil Wears Prada actress proved on Thursday that the admiration goes both ways. While it's no secret that Streep has experienced a fair share of getting into character for roles from Donald Trump to Miranda Priestly, the actress took things to the next level as she presented her longtime friend with the Life Achievement Award at the American Film Institute's event in Los Angeles. The Florence Foster Jenkins star—who accepted the award herself from Keaton in 2009—tried her own take on the actress's trademark style while channeling the cool menswear look that has now become synonymous with the 1977 Woody Allen classic Annie Hall. Taking a style cue from the boys, the 67-year-old donned an oversize black blazer, a black-and-white striped tie, a black hat, and high-waisted pants as she posed with her fellow actress at the star-studded event, which included Hollywood attendees like Steve Martin, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, and Martin Short. Meanwhile Keaton herself rocked a monochromatic look, with a black tea-length dress worn under a belted white coat, black fingerless gloves, high-heeled boots—all topped off with a black brimmed hat.  Keaton's trademark wardrobe never seems to go out of style. See what the stars wore to the event below.
