Working Girl at Coolidge Corner

4/23/2018 Coolidge Corner Theatre

Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith) is a secretary from Long Island who wants to climb the corporate ladder. When assigned to a new boss Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver), Tess learnes that not all women in corporate America are supportive of each other. After a misunderstanding with another executive Jack Trainer (Harrison Ford), Tess must navigate her ambition and a possibility for love. Working Girl is an 1980s classic about self-discovery, determination, feminism, love, and a whole lot of hairspray.

After the film, join us for a special conversation with a special guest from the Huntington's production of Top Girls.

About Top Girls

Career-driven Marlene has just landed the top job at a London employment agency over a male colleague. To celebrate, she hosts a lavish dinner with a group of famous and adventurous historical women who cheer the successes and bemoan the sacrifices required to be a “top girl” in a man’s world. Caryl Churchill’s groundbreaking masterpiece, originally a rebuke of Margaret Thatcher’s England in the 1980s, remains as relevant and powerful today.
