Five women arrive at a movie set for a casting call and, though at first suspicious of each other, soon become involved in each other’s lives. Realizing that none of them truly wants to be in the film, they take off together for a night of drinking and bonding. Each woman has her own interesting story, and the way that the actresses compliment each other is a fascinating study in casting. Schöne Frauen (2004) is deep, moving, and ultimately cathartic. Julia Jäger, among her newfound friends, lifts her shirt and shows off the funbags.
