'Shirley Valentine' Comes to Los Cuatro Vientos

November 5, 2013

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - The 1st Annual Intrepid Women Travelers Mini Film Festival will take place at Los Cuatro Vientos Hotel in downtown Puerto Vallarta on November 15, 2013.

As a finale to the hotel's Women's Personal Growth Week, owner Gloria Whiting will screen two classic films - "Shirley Valentine" and "Enchanted April." The stories revolve around the theme of mid-life women who boldly step out of their ruts to reclaim adventure and personal identities buried in the routines of life.

The movies will be shown on the rooftop patio (El Nido) overlooking Banderas Bay. The El Nido bar will be open, with cocktails, soft drinks and light snacks available for purchase. Doors open at 6 pm, with the double feature starting at 7 pm. Cost of admission: $50 pesos. Women AND Men are invited!

Shirley Valentine (1989)

In the role that won her Broadway's acclaimed Tony Award, Pauline Collins is the hilariously endearing Shirley Valentine, a wisecracking, completely unpredictable English housewife who proves it's never too late to recapture your dreams. Bored with her suburban life, Shirley takes a chance on adventure when a friend invites her on a vacation to Greece. Within no time she's back to her rebellious teenage roots, saying yes to a wild fling with a handsome rogue (Tom Conti) and the life she's always wanted.

Funny, witty, heartwarming, inspiring, sentimental without being syrupy, "Shirley Valentine" is for all of us who've ever wondered if we made the right choices in life - and if it's too late to take some of them back. This film will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and start dreaming again!

Enchanted April (1991)

Two proper Englishwomen, determined to get away from their drab lives and inattentive husbands, find paradise in the serene countryside of the Italian Riviera in this enchanting adventure starring Josie Lawrence and Miranda Richardson. When the pair rent a magnificent villa for a month, they share expenses with two unlikely companions - an austere widow and a bored socialite.

At first, personalities clash, but the hideaway holds a special magic that soon sparks friendships and reminds the women of ways to live and love that have long eluded them. Stellar performances and breathtaking scenery make the Academy Award nominated Enchanted April a captivating delight for everyone who's ever dreamed of taking the perfect holiday!
