In Margaret Thatcher’s Britain of the ’80s, Marlene celebrates a promotion with a dinner party full of legendary, historical and mythical women, from Pope Joan to one of Chaucer’s pilgrims to an imperial Japanese courtesan. As the wine starts to flow, each of these iconic women shares her own stories of sacrifice and success—but where’s the sisterhood? This modern classic dissects feminism and the cost of progress in Thatcher’s Britain, a country divided by class, cruelty and capitalism.
